After more than five decades of performing and with more than 200 recordings under his belt, Canada's most famous folk-pop singer-songwriter, Gordon Lightfoot, continues to entertain. The multi-platinum-selling artist famous for his deep baritone and 12-string finger-picking skills had success in the 1960s with songs like "For Lovin' Me," "Early Morning Rain," "Steel Rail Blues" and "Ribbon of Darkness." But it was the recording of his songs by major names -- from Elvis Presley and John Mellencamp to Neil Young and Bob Dylan -- that solidified Lightfoot's name in the folk canon. With more than 20 albums and five Grammy nominations to his name, Lightfoot is in exclusive company as one of music's all-time greats. Catch this folk-pop legend live at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco.

They don't call Placido Domingo the "King of the Opera" for nothing -- along with winning a dozen Grammy Awards for several of his multi-platinum albums, he's performed some 150 roles in six languages, recorded more than 100 complete operas, and in what many would consider a crowning achievement, he starred as himself on The Simpsons. Originally from Spain, Domingo gained fame as one of the Three Tenors, alongside José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti, and he's currently the General Director of the LA Opera, both conducting and performing. He'll be appearing in concert in Boston for the first time in a decade at the Boch Center, accompanied by two sopranos, Micaëla Oeste and Camila Titinger, and the Domingo Festival Orchestra, a hand-picked group of talented young musicians from the area.

Significant Other: Bittersweet Comedy About the Search for Mr. Right

What do you do when all your best friends suddenly start getting married? Forced to systematically transition from best friend to bridesman as each of his girlfriends gets married, Jordan Berman has decided it's time to start looking for a Mr. Right to call his own. This proves, however, to be a most uneasy transition. The New York Times hailed Significant Other as "an absolutely wonderful new play ... as richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring." Laugh (and wince) along as he wades through a string of workplace crushes, painfully awkward first dates and other romantic misadventures on his search for true love in this bittersweet comedy from Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews). After a successful off-Broadway and Broadway run, Significant Other takes the stage of L.A.'s Geffen Playhouse.

What follows is an action-packed puppet show that features all the wild antics of the irreverent cat in the titular hat (not to mention the utter pandemonium wreaked by Thing 1 and Thing 2 as they destroy the house, despite unceasing protests from an uptight goldfish), as the Seuss-ian style so perfectly suited to the art of puppetry comes to vivid life before your eyes.

So goes Vietgone, a bold new romantic comedy by "geek theater" impresario Qui Nguyen, an artist famous in New York for productions packed full of martial arts, sword fights and puppetry. Based on the lives of his own parents, Vietgone is a slightly more subtle affair, but still reflects Nguyen's irreverent humor and pop-culture-obsessed aesthetic as it crisscrosses between the traumatic evacuation of Saigon and a turbulent yet passionate tale of love in the rural United States.

Neil Simon's Classic Comedy Plaza Suite

Buy Tickets $14 $28

Hilarity abounds in Plaza Suite, a portrait of three couples successively occupying the same hotel digs. A suburban couple takes the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before. Wait. Was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years, she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!" This classic play hits the stage in Scottsdale at Desert Stage's intimate Actors Café.

It's 1979 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the so-called "Dirty War" -- waged by the military Junta against its own people -- is in full-swing. People are disappearing right off the street, and Carolina and her mother Josefina are searching for "Caro's" pregnant daughter Belén, who has been missing for twelve weeks. The Madres is set in the middle of the military's reign of terror, during which an estimated 30,000 Argentines disappeared and were never heard from again. Las Madres, also known as the Mothers of the Disappeared or Madres de los Desaparecidos, are a group of brave women who demanded the truth about the whereabouts of their missing children, grandchildren and even three of the original founding members of Las Madres. They began marching every Thursday in 1977 and continue marching today.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll.

Singer and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss adds even more razzle dazzle to that greatest of Broadway traditions: Chicago. Boasting sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a show biz story that packs a powerful punch, Chicago tells the tale of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who'll stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn. During the showy decadence of the 1920s, their malicious crimes turn them into media darlings, producing a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which could just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.

Constellation Theatre's The Caucasian Chalk Circle

Buy Tickets $17.50 - $20 $35 - $45

In its first major D.C. production in nearly 30 years, Bertolt Brecht's epic adventure comes to vibrant life in an innovative new production at D.C.'s Source. As corruption and violence rage in the Caucasus Mountains (giving the play its distinctive name), one woman's heroism in saving an abandoned baby is put on trial. But what's at stake is the entire social order. Constellation Theatre Company's 360-degree immersive staging gives you a front-row seat to Brecht's brilliant scenes -- from the heroine's desperate tiptoe across a precarious rope bridge to the frantic courtroom drama that decides everyone's fate. With a cast of 14 actors playing more than 60 vivid characters -- and propelled by a rock-inspired score performed live by a three-piece band -- the play recalls a time much like our own, one of political and social revolution, but fortified with a promise of compassion and hope.

When that doesn't work, he falls for the Swindler's line -- only to find that no matter how grand (or small) you appear, it's what's on the inside that counts.

An Epic Journey in Father Comes Home From the Wars

Buy Tickets $12 - $62 $15 - $102

The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history has epics of its own. Father Comes Home From the Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) at San Francisco's A.C.T. follows the slave, Hero, who agrees to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for his freedom, traveling from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From the Wars trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.

Eugene O'Neill's enduring master work, Anna Christie, is a surprisingly contemporary play that still crackles with fierce physicality, humor and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain (Lyric Stage favorite Johnny Lee Davenport) is reunited with the daughter he unwittingly abandoned to a life of hardship. It seems like Anna has found love with a shipwrecked sailor, only to be rejected by both of the men in her life when her dark past is revealed. As both her father and her suitor come to recognize their own responsibility for her plight, all three of them struggle to find forgiveness and redemption in each other. Following his acclaimed production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Scott Edmiston takes a fresh look at one of America's greatest playwrights.

But for Elias and Jenny, the young Brooklyn couple at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker's John, there's nothing quaint about their little getaway. With their relationship in trouble, the couple checks in only to be greeted by a cheerful yet somehow ... off innkeeper. Soon, it becomes apparent that they're not alone.

Buy Tickets $30 - $98 $45 - $130

Love, betrayal and revenge have never been portrayed with more ravishing beauty than in Lucia di Lammermoor. Though the title character is indeed driven to insanity, it's the audience who goes nuts for Donizetti's tragic opera. The role of the title heroine who teeters between love and madness is shared by sopranos Olga Peretyatko-Mariotti and Pretty Yende, who have each impressed audiences with dazzling bel canto portrayals at the Met. Vittorio Grigolo and Michael Fabiano share the role of her lover. It's impossible not to be drawn into the tale of fragile Lucia, manipulated into marrying a man she doesn't love as she's used by her brother for his own political advancement. The scene when she finally "snaps" remains one of the most sublime -- and technically difficult -- in the entire operatic canon. Roberto Abbado conducts, while Tony winner Mary Zimmerman directs this chilling production of Lucia di Lammermoor.

Dirty Blonde, Mae West-Inspired RomCom

Buy Tickets $22 - $37 $55 - $75

Nominated for five Tony Awards in 2000, this sparkling romantic comedy (with music) revolves around a guy, a gal, and their mutual admiration for one voluptuous actress, otherwise known as the delightfully risque bombshell Mae West. Dubbed a "cunningly written, raffish, elegant play" by The New Yorker, Claudia Shear's Dirty Blonde also manages to weave stories and songs from West's remarkable life and career into the proceedings, from her beginnings in vaudeville to her starring role in the perfectly-titled hit movie I'm No Angel and way beyond. Come up and see it some time at the Laguna Playhouse.

She's Jewish, he's Christian; She's white, and he's black. They love each other ... but not in that way. Or maybe they do? It's complicated. Charlotte and Jonny have been best friends since they were just nine years old. Now, as they tumble into their 20s and confront the mysteries of their sexuality, they find that the path forward is not always the one right in front of you. The Mystery of Love and Sex was written by Bathsheba Doran (Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex), and this regional premiere at San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre Center is directed by Rebecca Longworth. Come see for yourself why Time Out New York hailed this show as "wise and exquisitely crafted," and The New York Times described it as "tender, funny, packed with humanity and brimming with surprising revelations ... perfectly wonderful."

Acknowledged as "just about the biggest name in Spanish-language pop music" by The New York Times, the Colombian singer-songwriter has racked up sales of more than 15 million albums and taken home a record-setting 20 Latin Grammy Awards. His magnetic stage presence and unique sound are backed up by an equally astonishing work ethic, touring while his records enjoy marathon stints atop the charts -- like '02's Un Dia Normal, which spent 92 weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard Latin charts. Now he's touring behind his 2017 release Mis Planes Son Amarte, and hits the Hulu Theater at New York's Madison Square Garden with Chilean singer-songwriter Mon Laferte.

Powerful Medical Drama: Roz and Ray

Buy Tickets $25 - $31 $52 - $69

It's 1976, and Ray, a newly single parent, has only one goal: Keep his twin boys alive. Both of Ray's sons are hemophiliacs, which means that in addition to the regular stresses of single parenthood Ray must also contend with endless hospital trips, rigorous testing and frequent blood transfusions. When Ray meets Roz -- an optimistic and caring doctor with a miracle treatment for his sons' condition -- he thinks that he's found his savior. But miracles aren't always what they appear to be, and life on the cutting edge of biomedicine means moral ambiguity and impossible choices. Powerful, urgent and beautiful, Roz and Ray charts the untold story of a devastating chapter of medical and queer history. See why the Chicago Tribune deemed this a "very powerful play," when it comes to the stage of Theater J in Washington, DC.

Phoenix's Nearly Naked Theatre presents the Arizona premiere of The Underpants Godot by Duncan Pflaster. A director surreptitiously plans an avant-garde production of Waiting for Godot, with the main characters played by hot guys in their underwear instead of old men. When a representative of the notoriously litigious estate of Samuel Beckett crashes a rehearsal to investigate and decide whether the performance should be allowed, the performers must convince her by the seat of their ... underpants. This hilarious meta-theatrical piece asks us to test our limits of acceptable interpretation and adaptation of art from any era, be it Shakespeare or Tennessee Williams or the Batman franchise. Nominated for Outstanding Premiere of a Play by the NYIT Awards in NYC and winner of Best Play at the UNFringed Festival, The Underpants Godot is intended For mature audiences only, as it features adult language, mature themes, uppity literary criticism and nudity.

Chicago: The Red-Hot, Tony-Winning Musical

Buy Tickets $15 $30

Chicago has everything that makes a Broadway musical great: sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a show-biz story that packs a powerful punch. Set amidst the showy decadence of the 1920s, Chicago tells the tale of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who'll stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn. Their malicious crimes turn them into media darlings, producing a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which could just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. A smash on Broadway, winning six Tony Awards, this biting satire features the unforgettable songs of Kander and Ebb, including "All That Jazz" and "Cell Block Tango." Enjoy this dazzling new production from Big Noise Theatre in Des Plaines.

Journalist-turned-comedian Maureen "Mo" Langan, host of KGO Radio's Hangin' With Langan, is one of the country's top touring comics. In her one-woman show Daughter of a Garbageman, Langan traces her roots back to her upbringing in New Jersey in the 1970s, where her Irish mother and New York City sanitation worker father taught her that hard work and education are always rewarded. Now living in an era where Kardashians have book deals and reality TV stars win elections, Langan uses humor, honesty and insight to tap into the frustrations of hard-working people and explore how her parents got it wrong. Daughter of a Garbageman made its international debut in Edinburgh in 2016 and its U.S. debut at The Marsh in San Francisco in 2017, where it completed a six-month run, and then went on to Nantucket, Florida and The Irish Writers Festival. Now Langan returns to The Marsh San Francisco MainStage Theater.

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one completely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two.

From Churchill to Thatcher and Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these encounters as a sounding board and a confessional -- and now you can be a fly on the wall as The Audience re-creates these sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive conversations onstage at The Vintage Theatre - Black Box in Aurora.

Deathtrap: Diabolically Funny Broadway Thriller

The Group Rep presents the comic thriller Deathtrap, written by Ira Levin (The Stepford Wives, Rosemary's Baby). A successful-but-currently-stalled playwright whose recent offerings have been flops, conspires with his wife to "collaborate" with a student whose new thriller shows tremendous potential. Suspense mounts as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play. Directed by Jules Aaron and produced by Larry Eisenberg, see Deathtrap at the Lonny Chapman Theatre in North Hollywood.
