An all-female cast is shaking up everything you thought you knew about "Julius Caesar" -- and gender roles -- in a futuristic version. Queen Elizabeth I may have been rocking the crown when Shakespeare wrote this political thriller, but only men could perform it and during the Roman Empire, the setting of this tragedy, men held all of the political power. Gender roles are flipped from those times in this parallel universe as these badass women aren't just equal, they hold all of the cards. This "history play" (ehem "her-story play") has the drama of a "Scandal" episode between betrayal, relationships breaking down, civil war and the ugly fight for the top spot in politics. The stakes will be high and the glass ceiling will break with this Actors' Shakespeare Project's production in Boston at the Huntington Avenue Theatre, Lane-Comley Studio 210. [less-]

A pair of feuding perfume shop employees don't realize that they're secretly and anonymously writing love letters to each other in the sentimental musical comedy "She Loves Me". You can think of it as NBC's "Superstore" but with music. The Tony Award-winning tale also features music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick -- the same pair that wrote the tunes for the Broadway classic "Fiddler on the Roof". Produced on Broadway in 1963 and revived in 1993, the story is adapted from the play "Parfumerie" by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo, which served as the inspiration for the films "The Shop Around the Corner" and "You've Got Mail". Enjoy this production of "She Loves Me" at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham. [less-]

The great author, broadcaster and journalist Studs Terkel touched a nerve in 1974 when he published "Working", an oral history of real people and the jobs they performed. From sanitation truck drivers to professional athletes, the book gave voice to a sweepingly diverse cross-section of American life and was subsequently adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical of the same name. Now that you're hooked on seeing it, prepared to be reeled in -- the "Working" musical was recently updated with new songs by "Hamilton" impresario Lin-Manuel Miranda, adding a whole new level of clout and resonance for the modern age, and it's coming to the Umbrella Annex in Concord. See it and be powerfully reminded that though there is much that divides us, we are all school teachers, millworkers, waitresses and masons. We are all united by the need to work, and to find meaning in the work that we do. [less-]

Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the UK, and the cast is now bringing the good time to Boston. 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. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to The Rockwell for a drunken twist on "Romeo and Juliet", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]

Set in a local hair salon, "Shear Madness" is a hilarious whodunit with "you" as a central character and jokes and lines as up-to-date as the morning's news. When the beauty parlor's landlady is murdered at the outset, a blend of mystery and improvisational theater ensues, with audience members called upon to make sense of the clues, question the actors and ultimately solve the crime. This award-winning Boston institution, ongoing at the Charles Playhouse since 1980, boasts new clues and ripped-from-the-headlines humor every night, resulting in rollicking repeat visits, and has spawned 50 different productions in cities as far-flung as Barcelona, Rome, Paris, Tel Aviv, Melbourne and Johannesburg.
