Against a stark black wall, the acrobats of the Australian company Circa Ensemble strive to connect with each other, while music from Monteverdi's opera "Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria" is played and sung by a live chamber ensemble. Akin to a physical poem, the staging sees seven highly skilled artists precariously lift, hold, levitate and fall, their movements driven by the forces of desire, devastation and absence. At the core of this show is the hunger to return home - saturated with loss and war, powered by longing and haunted by the past. "Il Ritorno" at the Musco Center for the Arts in Orange is created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz in collaboration with composer and arranger Quincy Grant and the Circa Ensemble. [less-]

Among the things you may see and/or hear while attending an NHL game at the Honda Center are: popular mascot Wild Wing, Ducks' superfan Snoop Dogg, the goal song "Bro Hymn" by Pennywise, a fight, an officially licensed Ducks bikini (in the team store), a Zamboni, a player (or several) slammed up against the glass, the resulting penalty horn and best of all, the 2016-17 Pacific Division champion Anaheim Ducks skating for domination. Captain Ryan Getzlaf scored his 800th point last season, becoming the team's all-time leader in assists and playoff goals, and puck-stopper John Gibson returns in goal, so this season is shaping up to be one of the best ever for the hometown flock.

In 1982, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the very last wave of New York City's '60s-style Liberalism has come of age -- and there's nowhere left to go. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, "This Is Our Youth" follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era: Warren Straub, a dejected nineteen-year-old who steals $15,000 from his abusive lingerie-tycoon father; Dennis Ziegler, the charismatic, domineering, drug-dealing friend who helps him put the money to good use; and Jessica Goldman, the anxiously insightful young woman Warren yearns for. Funny, painful, and compassionate, "This Is Our Youth" is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood, where young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers -- ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they can possibly imagine. Don't miss this Tony-nominated dark comedy when it takes the stage of Modjeska Playhouse in Lake Forest. [less-]

When it comes to iconic guitar anthems ("Purple Haze," "Stairway to Heaven"), there's one song that has quite possibly spawned more would-be shredders (and driven untold others to throw up their hands in resignation) than any other: Eric Johnson's "Cliffs of Dover." From the dizzying speed of its first notes to the soaring, infectious main riff, the Grammy-winning single drove the album it appears on, 1990's "Ah Via Musicom", to platinum status (no easy feat for a largely instrumental release). And while Johnson might not quite be a household name, among guitar players, he's revered: he's placed high on just about every music publication's list of all-time greats, he's toured alongside fellow guitar heroes John Petrucci and Joe Satriani on their G3 tour, and has recorded with legends like Chet Atkins and John McLaughlin. Now, Johnson hits the stage at City National Grove of Anaheim to perform his breakthrough album in full, backed by the band he recorded it with. [less-]
