Four very different women wrestling with dieting, exercise, plastic surgery, sex over the age of 40 and other body image issues tackle them all with humor and pizzazz in "WaistWatchers the Musical". This clever production at 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento follows the popular pattern of "Menopause the Musical", as it delights with beloved pop songs and show tunes rewritten as parodies of the themes at hand. Thus, ABBA's "Dancing Queen" becomes "Botox Queen," "West Side Story's" "Maria" turns into "Viagra" and "A Chorus Line"'s "I Hope I Get It" becomes "I Hope I Lose It." With 22 tunes, this fast-paced show gives its talented performers quite a workout, while you benefit from the belly laughs. [less-]

In this powerful stage adaptation of "The Diary of Anne Frank", young Anne emerges from history as a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination.

I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" Don't miss this inspiring depiction of optimism and the raw determination to survive and even dream despite extraordinary circumstances. [less-]

Although Parliament came to a close, Clinton brings the two forces together for one epic Halloween night of funk at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento. [less-]

Give yourself over to the wild and irreverent B movie homage of Richard O'Brien's cult-classic musical "The Rocky Horror Show". This is not actors performing in front of a screening of the Hollywood film adaptation, but a complete live production of the original stage show at Downtown Theatre. The horror/sci-fi parody begins on a dark and stormy evening, as virginal sweethearts Brad and Janet find themselves stranded on a lonely road. Weathering the storm in the mysterious mansion of mad scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the young couple's lives are turned upside down and their minds expanded by the kooky, kinky residents of Frank-N-Furter's household. This beloved camp extravaganza features audience participation and unforgettable songs such as "Sweet Transvestite," "Damn It, Janet" and, of course, the pelvic-thrusting "Time Warp." [less-]
