Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet Performed with Drunken Cast Member

Buy Tickets $15 $25

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.

Waiting for Waiting for Godot: Hilarious Backstage Comedy

On every level, the phrase "absurdly funny" aptly describes Waiting for Waiting for Godot, the festival favorite receiving its local premiere at Club Cafe. Leave it to Dave Hanson, a whip-smart comedian and former joke writer for Late Night with Chelsea Handler, to craft a brilliant backstage comedy about two understudies waiting to perform Samuel Beckett's modern classic Waiting for Godot. Far more than an (insanely) clever concept, Waiting ... deftly incorporates illuminating insights and knockout punchlines even as it shadows the developments of Beckett's famous work. Winner of overall "Best of the Fringe" at the New York Fringe Festival -- and praised by The New York Times as "delectable" -- Waiting for Waiting for Godot now comes to Boston.

Titled Gravitational Fool, the show is a sensual circus of the psyche -- and even features an aerialist and an acrobat. The group's music has been called gothic soul, cabaret-pop and fairytale-noir.

Sangria and Rosé Wine Fest: Mingle While You Sip

Buy Tickets $37.50 $75

Few beverages say "summer" like a fruity sangria or a grape-skin-tinged rosé. Now you can gather at Boston's Seaport World Trade Center, on the upper rotunda, and network with hundreds of other young professionals while listening to a live DJ, sipping samples from on-hand vendors, while supplies last, and maybe even joining in the fun of an interactive game. This three-hour Sangria and Rosé Wine Fest is a win-win no matter how you look at it -- at the end you get to walk away with some useful new business contacts and maybe a new favorite wine or two. And a lucky few will also take home special prizes valued at over $1,000. Say "Cheers" to that and grab your ticket now to this fun summer gathering.

Tony-Nominated The Rainmaker: A Captivating Classic

Buy Tickets $19 - $21 $38 - $42

N. Richard Nash's The Rainmaker has it all: faith, love, humor, emotion and even a little magic. Farm girl Lizzie Curry is best described as "plain." Her marriage prospects and dreams of escape are as dry as her family's drought-ridden farm. Her dad and brothers' efforts to marry her off are generally laughable. Enter the fast-thinking, smooth-talking "rainmaker" Starbuck, who could solve both the romantic issue and drought problem. Lizzie's father gives the man the last of the family's savings and holds onto his hat. Will Starbuck turn out to be a con man and a liar ... or is he a hero with magical powers? Nash's funny and poignant American tale brings out the true power of hope during hard times. See this sweet charmer at the Gloucester Stage.

Buy Tickets $15 $35

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.

The shocker is that they also wrote the critically acclaimed screenplay. Unable to believe that claim, comedian Mindy Kaling and actress Brenda Withers created this hilarious comedy that explains the "true" origin of the Academy Award-winning screenplay. In this clever re-imagining of the events that led to the creation of the film, the screenplay for Good Will Hunting drops mysteriously from the heavens and the boys realize they're being tested by a higher power. This affectionate riff on the legendary bromance stars Lauren Robinson and Libby Schap as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and follows them over the course of one long Saturday in Somerville as they fight, reminisce and hallucinate a lot more than normal when confronted with the screenplay that will change their lives.

Legendary rocker Elvis Costello and his band, The Imposters, are hitting the road on their acclaimed Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers tour and are coming to the Providence Performing Arts Center. For this concert, Costello and Co. have breathed fresh life into one of Costello's best works, the 1982 album Imperial Bedroom. With songs like "Beyond Belief," "Almost Blue," "Shabby Doll," "Tears Before Bedtime" and "Man Out Of Time," the album was ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest of all time. While many of the songs have remained staples of Costello's sets over the years, the singer says these revitalized arrangements get "straight to the real meaning" of the tunes. And, since it's Costello, there are sure to be plenty of surprises throughout the night.
