SF Symphony & Chorus: Berlioz's Stunning Romeo & Juliet

Buy Tickets $20 $49

For French composer Hector Berlioz, it was a performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Odéon Theatre in Paris in 1827 that first inspired his large-scale symphonic adaptation of Shakespeare's romantic tragedy -- a work that would ultimately rank among the finest works of his lifetime. More than a decade later, Berlioz's tour de force choral symphony finally got its debut at the Paris Conservatoire (with Wagner in the audience, no less). Now, after tackling his monumental Requiem in May, the San Francisco Symphony and Chorus are bringing Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet to the Davies Hall stage. Acclaimed opera singers Luca Pisaroni, Nicholas Phan and Sasha Cooke complete the cast to bring Shakespeare's romantic masterwork to life like you've never experienced it before, all under the baton of legendary San Francisco Symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas.

You'll also experience a pair of influential 20th-century works by Charles Ives, a piece by American Gamelan master Lou Harrison that combines sound from an Indonesian instrument group with classical violin, and a 1920s-inspired cabaret version of Antheil's A Jazz Symphony.

Don Reed's East 14th: Hit Solo Show Returns

Buy Tickets $10 $20

Stand-up comic, writer, actor and director Don Reed (The Tonight Show, OWN, HBO) returns to The Marsh Berkeley with his long-running, award-winning solo show, East 14th: Tales of a Reluctant Player. Reed relates the hilarious and poignant story of his boyhood in 1970s Oakland, torn between his strict, churchgoing mother's upbringing and his admiration of his father -- who happens to be a pimp. East 14th was an off-Broadway hit, nominated for two NAACP Theatre Awards, and an excerpt aired on NPR/WNYC's acclaimed series Snap Judgment. The New Yorker called the show "hilarious" and went on to say, "The audience can't stop laughing ... Don Reed plays all the characters with both ease and inexhaustible energy."

Buy Tickets $10 $20

For far too long, a shadowy cabal of donors and elitist administrators has controlled what is seen on stage in San Francisco. Their reign ends with ShortLived, the largest audience-judged theater competition in the nation. Now you get to decide which playwright ultimately succeeds in winning the $5,000 grand prize. Over six rounds, you'll be shown 36 plays, with each offering a sampler of bite-size brilliance from experienced playwrights, unknown up-and-comers and local indie theater companies. Your vote is key in determining who is the ultimate champion -- but be forewarned, if previous years are any indication, it's tough to pick a favorite from these funny, serious and always-interesting shorts.

Romantic Comedy The Clean House From Acclaimed Playwright Sarah Ruhl

Buy Tickets $11 - $15 $22 - $30

Pulitzer Prize finalist The Clean House is a wry romantic comedy that centers around Matilde, a Brazilian-born live-in maid who'd rather be telling jokes than mopping floors. Her employer, Lane, seems to have it all: a successful surgeon husband and her own busy career as a doctor. But things aren't always what they appear to be on the surface. The New York Times has called playwright Sara Ruhl "a provocative new theatrical voice" and The Clean House "visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts." An entertaining tale about love, loss and the power of a good joke, this show sheds insightful light on characters searching for ever-elusive perfection. Laugh out loud (and learn something too) at the Coastal Repertory Theatre in Half Moon Bay.
