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 by an entirely inebriated cast. 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 cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to Somerville's Davis Square Theatre for a drunken twist on "Romeo and Juliet", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

A biting dark comedy and gut-wrenching psychological portrait of marital breakdown, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" has been a mainstay of American theater since winning the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play. Later immortalized in a film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the play was written by the acclaimed Edward Albee. It's the story of George and Martha, a middle-aged couple who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games, leading to a devastating revelation. Razor-sharp dialogue and incisive character portraits make "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" one for your theatrical bucket list. Now see a new production of this classic at the Lyric Stage of Boston.

The disco-fueled interactive dance party known as "The Donkey Show", very loosely inspired by Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", puts you smack in the middle of the action in a funky Cambridge lounge setting. Featuring two full bars and a dance floor, OBERON's Diane Paulus-created wonderland was inspired by Studio 54 in its heyday, when celebrities and art icons would mix and mingle with kids from Queens, and the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack would be shaking the speakers. While you -- and the rest of the audience -- drink, dance to disco classics or just check out the action, the motley crew of characters in this glammed-up, sex-fueled version of Shakespeare's play re-enact the hilariously chaotic tale of a magic elixir that wreaks havoc at the nightclub. But it's mostly just a cool boogie-filled bash. [less-]

"Once" began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Next, it took the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Now presented at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester, the romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet-cute in the least likely of places: a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

La Marquise du Châtelet was a woman born in the wrong era. A brilliant mathematician and physicist, she was the toast of the Enlightenment. Nevertheless, she's not a very well known historical figure. Voltaire got it right when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now Lauren Gunderson's play "Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight" resurrects this fascinating personality. Emilie finds herself back in the world of the living, patting her body in surprise and wondering at the reason for her return. She soon becomes desperate to find out whether her challenge to one of Isaac Newton's equations was correct. "I died thinking: Was I right?" she explains. "Shortly followed by: Was I loved? Shortly followed by: Does either one really matter in the end?" This smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius is onstage at Wellesley's Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre. [less-]
