This humorous and affecting masterwork from Anton Chekhov ("The Seagull, Uncle Vanya") centers around the once-privileged members of the Prozorov family. After the death of their army general father, the three sisters that give this play its title begin to feel constrained by the smallness of life in their tiny provincial Russian town. Attempts to improve their crumbling social status lay bare the larger forces of unrest that will soon engulf the entire area. Melodrama turned inside out, this vivid new version of "Three Sisters" -- as reinterpreted by playwright-actor Tracy Letts -- is a story of yearning and ordinary life, where little appears to be happening ... but everything is revealed. Enjoy this intimate Apollinaire Theatre Company production of "Three Sisters", staged in three locations at Chelsea Theatre Works. [less-]

Before it became the feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, "The Last Five Years" began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by "Time" Magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, "The Last Five Years" is a two-person show that navigates the ins and outs -- and beginning and ending -- of a marriage. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown ("Parade"), this Drama Desk Award winner is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. There is, however, a twist: The man retells the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. See this heartfelt song cycle from A Common Thread Theatre Company at Boston Church of Christ's Dennison Hall in Framingham. [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-]
