"Macbeth" plunges into the depths of human weakness, far below the furthest reach of light and reason, and seeks out the monsters that coil and slink in the dark. If that sounds like a horrifying -- and exciting -- journey, it is. In 400 years, no horror novel or sci-fi blockbuster has been able to top it. Set in a gloomy world of ghosts and witches, the tragedy's bloody cycle of corruption and betrayal is thrown into motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Macbeth soon achieves the power he believes he is destined for, but at an infamously high cost. See Shakespeare's most spellbinding tragedy when it's performed by a youth cast at San Jose's Historic Hoover Theatre. [less-]

Mel Brooks' outrageous, Tony-winning musical comedy "The Producers" tells the story of broke Broadway producer Max Bialystock and his accountant, Leo Bloom. Desperate for cash, these two schemers hatch a plan to produce a musical that's sure to be a failure so they can cut and run with the unspent production money. But when their "big flop" turns out to be a huge hit, they're in trouble. Based on the classic 1968 film, and featuring the hilariously tasteless show-within-a-show "Springtime for Hitler", "The Producers" skewers the over-the-top absurdities of musical theater while delivering a heartfelt tale of the true friendship that develops between two would-be con artists. Catch this Broadway hit that scored a record 12 Tony Awards when it comes to the Fox Theatre in Redwood City. [less-]

In the critically acclaimed, award-winning "John", from Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker ("The Flick, Circle Mirror Transformation"), a young New York couple arrives in Gettysburg to see the famous Civil War sites and ends up battling to keep their relationship alive. Welcomed by the cheerfully odd proprietor of a tchotchke-filled bed-and-breakfast, the duo encounters a number of eerie occurrences, as questions of secrets and spirituality, love and solitude, and life and death enter the atmosphere. This off-Broadway success (of which "The New Yorker" raved: "Annie Baker's "John " is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light") now comes to San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater's Strand Theater.
