An all-female cast is shaking up everything you thought you knew about "Julius Caesar" -- and gender roles -- in a futuristic version. Queen Elizabeth I may have been rocking the crown when Shakespeare wrote this political thriller, but only men could perform it and during the Roman Empire, the setting of this tragedy, men held all of the political power. Gender roles are flipped from those times in this parallel universe as these badass women aren't just equal, they hold all of the cards. This "history play" (ehem "her-story play") has the drama of a "Scandal" episode between betrayal, relationships breaking down, civil war and the ugly fight for the top spot in politics. The stakes will be high and the glass ceiling will break with this Actors' Shakespeare Project's production in Boston at the Huntington Avenue Theatre, Lane-Comley Studio 210. [less-]

Set in a local hair salon, "Shear Madness" is a hilarious whodunit with "you" as a central character and jokes and lines as up-to-date as the morning's news. When the beauty parlor's landlady is murdered at the outset, a blend of mystery and improvisational theater ensues, with audience members called upon to make sense of the clues, question the actors and ultimately solve the crime. This award-winning Boston institution, ongoing at the Charles Playhouse since 1980, boasts new clues and ripped-from-the-headlines humor every night, resulting in rollicking repeat visits, and has spawned 50 different productions in cities as far-flung as Barcelona, Rome, Paris, Tel Aviv, Melbourne and Johannesburg.

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-]
