John Leguizamo is back on Broadway! After a sold-out run at The Public Theater, a record-breaking engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and unanimous praise from New York and national critics and audiences alike, Emmy Award-winner John Leguizamo stands at the head of the class in his new one-man tour de force, Latin History for Morons. When his son gets a school assignment on heroes, John seizes the chance to teach him all about the great figures of the Latino world.

It all started on a dreary night in 1816, when Mary Shelley dreamt of a "hideous phantasm," a man patched together from the parts of other men. And for the 200 years since, that same Creature has continued to lurch and lumber through countless more nightmares. Much more than just a monster story, Frankenstein blends moments of brooding terror and sudden shock with questions of morality and the dangers of unrestrained scientific inquiry. Now that "phantasm" -- and the monster who created him -- mounts the stage of the Players Theatre in New York City this Halloween season, in this musical adaptation that features a score for a live, percussion-based chamber ensemble.

French Romantic composer Jacques Offenbach never finished his 1881 opera, Les Contes D'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann), but its witty libretto and wonderful score have made it popular around the world. Based on the works of the writer E.T.A. Hoffmann, the story finds a young French poet (played by Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo) pining after the prima donna (soprano Anita Hartig) who's performing next door to his local tavern. While he waits for her show to end, he reminisces over three of his lost loves, each romance thwarted by one of Four Villains of the story, all of whom are sung by Christophe Mortagne in a virtuoso performance. The "Barcarole" is the most famed of its musical highlights and appears in the film Titanic. Les Contes D'Hoffmann is sung in French with Met titles in English, German and Spanish. A glass of champagne or a nonalcoholic beverage is included with each ticket.

When the script for Ferguson first went into production in 2015, nine cast members of the original staged reading in Los Angeles walked out before opening night because of their desire to rewrite the script. But you can't rewrite the truth, and you can't rewrite history, as the official world premiere of Ferguson demonstrates through a dramatic retelling of the controversial killing of Michael Brown using only Grand Jury testimony. Called "a riveting spectacle" by LA Weekly, this provocative play places the transcript from one of America's most incendiary court cases into the mouths of skilled actors, offering a fresh take on the ongoing debate over race, police profiling, and the use of lethal force in law enforcement. These are the issues of the moment, dramatized with urgency and power in Ferguson at the 30th Street Theatre in New York City.

Beauty never showed up. Centuries after the curse, the Beast and his last remaining magical servant are holed up in a ramshackle apartment, managed by a mysterious landlady with a suspicious taste for gingerbread. When an eligible maiden moves in next door, "happily ever after" feels agonizingly within reach, but we all know that in fairy tales, nothing is exactly as it seems. Full of humor, magic and belief in the life-altering power of love, Glassheart is a witty and decidedly adult take on a classic tale that explores the space between light and dark, and the sacrifices we make in search of an ordinary life.

Shakespeare and extreme food challenges -- you probably never thought you'd see those two topics in the same sentence. It's hard to imagine Laurence Olivier performing Hamlet's immortal "to be, or not to be" monologue while chowing down on a scorching habanero pepper, but rumor has it that old Will had a sweet tooth, so the cast of Junk Shakespeare has dreamed up a whole new school of Shakespearean interpretation: eating extreme junk food while attempting to perform some of Shakespeare's greatest masterpieces. Set in a hidden library bursting at the seams with thousands of books, this show brings chaotic hilarity in the form of famous character impressions, pop culture references and Pop Rocks. Plus, each show is different, depending on what offensive combination of foods the cast is forced to eat. Experience Shakespeare like you've never seen him at The Lounge in the Theater District of Times Square.

Backed by the soulful Jump Blues Band, Valera doesn't so much play the saxophone as let it sing, unleashing a range of emotions and experiences too rich and wonderful for mere words to convey.

Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Club Bonafide in New York City.

Getting away with murder can be so much fun ... and there's no better proof than the Tony Award-winning musical, Gentleman's Guide. This Broadway hit is taking over the Palace Theater in Waterbury and bringing along the deliciously bloodthirsty anti-hero Monty Navarro, heir to his family's fortune. Well ... almost the heir. He's got about eight people ahead of him in line for that sweet cash, so he decides to finesse his way to the front by simply eliminating the eight relatives who stand in his way. "Eliminating," BTW, means straight-up murdering them. It's a big job for just one guy, and on top of that, Monty also has to juggle his mistress, his fiancée and the constant threat of getting caught. In an ingenious twist, one actor plays all eight of the doomed heirs in the musical The New York Times called "the year's greatest musical theater performance."
