Gypsy

Even The New York Times says it "may be the greatest of all American musicals."

Matt and Ben  
The Riot Theater Matt and Ben
 
It's no surprise that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck became movie stars after showing off their acting skills in Good Will Hunting. 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.

Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing  
Oberon Sh*t-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing
 
Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an 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 U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Cambridge. 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 Shakespeare knowledge and head down to OBERON, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

The Taming  
Elayne Bernstein Theatre The Taming
 
With her cheerfully absurd production The Taming, award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson offers up a Shakespeare-inspired, playful and problematic battle of the sexes. America's overheated political rhetoric is exposed through the passions of three slightly insane women who just might be revolutionary geniuses. This hilarious red state vs. blue state comedy was originally inspired by the banter in The Taming of the Shrew. The play spanks America's sound-bite politics and proves the point that true debate is hot. Get caught up in the timely campaign trail tale at Elayne Bernstein Theatre in Lenox.

Twelfth Night  
Central Square Theater Twelfth Night
 
With Bedlam's Twelfth Night, you'll see one play, two completely different ways, with the same five actors. The theatrical troupe specializes in classical revivals that are both radically innovative and winningly playful and their Shakespeare send-up is no exception. Twelfth Night -- which tracks the misadventures of shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian -- is famously filled with unrequited love, mistaken identity, romantic mischief and some of Shakespeare's wittiest wordplay. When Bedlam returns to Cambridge's Central Square Theater, they'll present two different versions of the Bard's gender-bending comedy, both of them staged by the same director and performed by the same five-person cast, whose members share between them all 12 parts.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike  
Arlington Friends of the Drama Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
 
The Tony Award winner for Best Play of 2013, Christopher Durang's hit Broadway satire skewers the classic dramas of Anton Chekhov through an absurdist tale of family dysfunction with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike -- and you don't have to be a student of Russian literature to appreciate this zany farce. Siblings Vanya and Sonia live a quiet life in the Bucks County farmhouse where they grew up. But when their movie star sister Masha returns home unannounced with Spike, her 20-something boy toy, an unforgettable weekend ensues. Hailed as "deliriously funny" by The New York Times, this tale of sibling rivalry, regret and raucousness comes to Arlington Friends of the Drama.

What You Will  
Central Square Theater What You Will
 
What You Will takes Shakespeare's source material in a fascinating new direction while keeping its core intact. This "inspiring" (The New York Times) Bedlam production features music from the likes of Billie Holiday, Dusty Springfield and French pop chanteurs, and a cast whose pristine white clothes become smeared with lipstick, yellow paint and "their own hearts' blood" (The Wall Street Journal) as the play progresses. Shakespeare's Twelfth Night -- which tracks the misadventures of shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian -- is famously filled with unrequited love, mistaken identity, romantic mischief, love triangles, deception and some of the Bard's wittiest wordplay. The Central Square Theater in Cambridge hosts the gender-bending comedy alongside Bedlam's Twelfth Night, an alternate interpretation by the same group. The New York Times proclaims "though each takes its own (and surprisingly slight) liberties with the original script, they arrive at the same resonant, wonder-inspiring conclusion."
