A lot of stand-up comedians these days are all about self-deprecation and low-key personas -- Chris Porter isn't one of them. Best known as a finalist in season four of "Last Comic Standing", Porter owns the stage with a kind of righteous sarcasm that comes off like a refreshing throwback to stand-up's golden age while still maintaining his own unique personality. Whether he's railing against the dishonesty of makeup or defending the honesty of Taco Bell, Porter calls it like he sees it, with a manic energy and a gift for language. He's had his own Comedy Central special and appeared on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and the "Late Show with David Letterman". Catch Porter when he hits the stage of Punch Line Sacramento.

The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage, as does a plethora of pubescent angst and awkwardness, in this hit musical comedy about six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. As the tweens spell their way through a series of words, they also tell funny and touching stories from their home life. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst, from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)," and the hard-fought contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tonys in its original run, winning for Best Book. Find out why when "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" comes to the Downtown Theatre in Fairfield. [less-]

Ira Levin is best known for writing "The Boys from Brazil, The Stepford Wives" and, of course, "Rosemary's Baby". But Levin also turned his imagination to the stage, and the terrifying "Veronica's Room" is among the darkest of all his efforts. Invited to a crumbling mansion by its charming Irish caretakers, Susan, a young co-ed, is met with an unusual request.

But a compassionate-sounding request masks a fiendish plot with hellish consequences that Susan might never escape.
