Dirty Rotten Scoundrels May 3 - May 19, 2019  
Arlington Friends of the Drama Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
 
Based on the beloved 1988 movie, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep you laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
 
   
Adrift in Macao May 3 - May 19, 2019  
Walpole Footlighters Playhouse Adrift in Macao
 
Set in 1952 in Macao, China, Adrift in Macao is a loving parody of film noir movies. Everyone who comes to Macao is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they hang around to find out. The characters include standards like Lureena, the curvaceous blonde, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf and turf casino owner on her first night in town. She ends up getting a job singing in his night club -- perhaps for no reason other than the fact that she looks great in a slinky dress. And don't forget about Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysterious villain McGuffin. With songs and quips, puns and farcical shenanigans, this musical parody is bound to please audiences of all ages.

Seduced by revenge and fueled by passion, the two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster's daughter, Annette Hargrove. As the two set out to destroy the innocent girl, and anyone who gets in their way, they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation and the cruelest game of all ... love. Featuring your favorite throwback hits by artists like Boyz II Men, Christina Aguilera, REM, *NSYNC and, of course, Britney Spears, this intoxicating new musical is a full-on '90s party.

I Hate Hamlet May 31 - Jun 15, 2019  
Boston Center for the Arts I Hate Hamlet
 
A wildly funny pas de deux that The New York Times called "unapologetically silly and affectionately amusing." A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.
 
   
Cloud 9 Jun 6 - Jun 30, 2019  
Central Square Theater Cloud 9
 
Victorian repression clashes with liberal expression in this show that follows a British family from colonial Africa to contemporary London. Filled with unexpected trysts, gender swaps, role reversals and power plays, Cloud 9 is a provocative, exuberant, time-shifting comedy that's both a parody and spoof of the ever-changing world of sexual politics. Caryl Churchill, lauded with "creating a new theatrical language," was recently recognized by The Guardian as "now sharing with Tom Stoppard the title of Britain's most significant living dramatist." Enjoy Cloud 9 at the Central Square Theater in Cambridge.

Cutler Majestic Theatre Passengers
 
The 7 Fingers, the innovative art collective behind hit shows Cuisine & Confessions and Reversible, brings their signature mix of circus, theater, illusion, music and dance to Boston's Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre with their all-new show Passengers. Expect electrifying acrobatics and much more as the show explores themes of departure, arrival, destiny, stillness and change. Passengers are a community of strangers with one thing in common: they all have somewhere to go. Our reasons for leaving may differ but we are joined in a moment of suspended limbo between two lives, as we say goodbye to one and prepare for another.
