Among the familiar faces you might see spoofed at this Club Fugazi production: Lady Gaga, Barack and Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton and Adele. Now running for more than 40 years, Beach Blanket Babylon remains one of San Francisco's wildest evenings of live entertainment.

The Glass Menagerie -- Tennessee Williams' Masterpiece

Buy Tickets $25 - $55 $51 - $74

Brimming with poetic language and emotional longing, Tennessee Williams' memory play The Glass Menagerie is rightly considered a true classic, a work that's lost none of its power over the generations. Set in a Depression-era St. Louis tenement, aspiring poet Tom struggles with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home a "gentleman caller" for his painfully shy sister Laura, whose collection of glass animals mean everything to her. But when Tom finally produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shock waves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built may be irreparably shattered. Experience this moving, beautiful production, helmed by acclaimed Chicago director Lisa Portes, at Cal Shakes Bruns Amphitheater in Orinda.

Award-winning British screenwriter-playwright Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Suffragette), has, in the words of Time Out, "elaborated a play of remarkable intensity and richness ...

As a revolution grows increasingly violent outside the confines of an opulent presidential palace, the arrival of an embattled dictator is awaited by four women -- the dictator's wife, her best friend, a British journalist and a translator. Time refracts and the past plays out from varying perspectives as the political tension escalates and the plot of the fascinating Splendour unfolds. Don't miss the Bay Area premiere of this breathtaking journey from Berkeley's Aurora Theatre Company.

Kool & The Gang Play Mountain Winery With the Village People

Buy Tickets $39.50 $84.64

Spend an evening at Saratoga's Mountain Winery with two of the most influential groups of all time. R&B legends Kool & The Gang have been funking up house parties since the early '70s, flooding dance floors with classic jams like "Jungle Boogie," "Ladies' Night" and "Celebration." The multi-platinum-selling artists have also been a go-to group when it was time to slow things down, with quiet storm gems like "Joanna" and "Cherish" scoring many a couple's dance. The Village People -- the cop, the military man, the Native American Indian, the construction worker, the cowboy and the biker -- are now some 40 years into their reign as the kings of disco. With lead singer Ray Simpson at the helm, this famously costumed group's live shows are a high-energy run through some of the biggest hits of the '70s and '80s, including "Macho Man," "Y.M.C.A.," "In the Navy" and "Go West."

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 - $45 $40 - $50

This is not your grandmother's gospel. The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell, where Jesus' betrayer Judas stands trial in purgatory as his lawyers bargain for his admission to heaven. The trial flashes through Judas' life, all the way back to his childhood, while incredible figures from history and beyond are called to testify -- figures like Mother Teresa, Sigmund Freud and even Satan himself. As the trial unfolds, audience members must confront old truths and examine what it means to really forgive during a production that ranges between hilarious dark comedy and intimate, touching drama. Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis, winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot can be seen at Shelton Theater in San Francisco.

George and Ira Gershwin's Porgy & Bess debuted in 1935 as a groundbreaking opera starring a cast composed entirely of classically trained African-American singers performing the classical, jazz and folk music. Now, the stirring tale of African-American life in South Carolina's fictional Catfish Row comes to the Lincoln Theater at Festival Napa Valley. Based on the play Porgy by DuBose and Dorothy Heyward, the story follows the crippled Porgy as he sets out to rescue Bess from Crown, her violent and possessive lover, and Sportin' Life, a drug dealer. Porgy & Bess includes the classic songs "Summertime," "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'" and "Bess, You Is My Woman Now." This concert version, featuring show highlights and led by conductor Joel Revzen, will star soprano Angel Blue, a Placido Domingo protege soon to appear as Bess at the Metropolitan Opera, and acclaimed baritone Lester Lynch, who recently sang the role of Crown at Opéra de Montréal and with the Berlin Philharmonic.

What does it mean to be, in the words of London's Daily Telegraph, "one of our finest improv comedians"? It means going on epic comedic riffs, glorious tangents studded with references to history, politics and religion.

Best known for his appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Proops has also appeared on dozens of TV shows, including HBO's Flight of the Conchords. He was a frequent guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately and Red Eye.

Hamlet: Innovative Production of Shakespeare's Psychological Thrill Ride

Visited by his father's ghost and tasked with avenging his murder, Prince Hamlet descends into madness and homicidal rage in Shakespeare's masterpiece. In the Bard's immortal words, Hamlet meditates on the nature of life versus death, fate versus choice and art versus reality in an eloquence that has yet to be matched: "To be or not to be" will forever provoke soul-searching in audiences. Something may be rotten in Denmark, but Hamlet remains fresh -- especially in San Francisco performing group Ninjaz Of Drama's take. Edited down to a chamber drama and performed by a earnest cast in modern dress with minimal staging, this faithful yet innovative interpretation of the play is sure to entertain both the discerning lover of Shakespeare and those experiencing it for the first time. The psychological thrill ride of revenge, sex, greed and the supernatural comes to the Phoenix Theatre San Francisco.

Tour guide Joseph Amster incorporates his journalistic and acting talents to provide a one-of-a-kind tour in which he takes on the persona of Emperor Norton and introduces you to the history of the city's most unique and interesting sites through the eyes of this larger-than-life unofficial mascot.
