"Big Fish" is a whimsical and touching tale that centers on the charismatic Edward Bloom. He has lived a full and fantastic life populated by magical creatures, true love that stops time in its tracks and acts of heroism that push the limits of belief. But not everyone is thrilled with Edward's stories. His tall tales frustrate his son Will, who wants to know who his father truly is. As Edward's final chapter approaches, Will embarks on his own journey to untangle the real man from the myths his father has created about his life. "Big Fish" is a heartfelt, powerful, and truly magical musical about fathers, sons, and the stories that we use to define our identities. With spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and a funny, heartwarming book by John August, the Umbrella Center for the Arts' production of "Big Fish" is a magnificent "big fish" of a tale itself -- spectacular, fantastical and overflowing with love.

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-]

Boris Eifman, known as the bad boy of Russian ballet, comes to Emerson College's Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston for a stirring performance of "Tchaikovsky. Pro et Contra". One of Eifman's signature dance-theater pieces, along with "Rodin" and "Don Quixote", this full-length work dives into the tortured and brilliant mind of composer Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky ("The Nutcracker", "Swan Lake"), exploring both his complicated sexuality and intense creative process through stunning choreography. Featuring some of Tchaikovsky's most unforgettable scores, this moving ballet artfully captures the composer's torment and ecstasy, materializing demons, fairies and other fantastical characters from his works to embody his struggle. "The Los Angeles Times" calls Eifman's creations "theatrical, visionary works that delve into characters' lives in the most exciting, probing, titillating and wondrous ways." [less-]
