Without a doubt the most famous play in the English language, "Hamlet" is much more than a collection of quotable lines, like the legendary soliloquy that begins with "To be or not to be?" It's also a thrilling tale of political intrigue, murder, madness and duels to the death. Hamlet is one of theater's greatest anti-heroes, caught between his duty as a son and his desire for moral purity. He is haunted by the rage-filled ghost of his father, who won't rest until his death is avenged. Even worse, every time Hamlet hesitates to take action, it's his friends and loved ones that pay the price. With a cast led by Tony Award-nominee John Douglas Thompson, this will be an unforgettable theatrical event at the A.C.T. theater in San Francisco. [less-]

Written as an allegory for the McCarthy "witch hunts" launched against alleged communists in the 1950s, Arthur Miller's timeless drama about the Salem witch trials remains as powerful a statement as ever about the American tendency towards mass hysteria. Set in Massachusetts circa 1692, "The Crucible" explores the frightening paranoia that takes hold when five young girls claim to have been visited in the night by the devil, a spreading scandal that catches the young farmer John Proctor and his wife Elizabeth in the crossfire. "The Crucible" won the Tony Award for Best Play in its Broadway debut and still holds a spot as one of the most popular and exciting American plays today. Now you can catch this Los Altos Stage Company production of the thrilling psychological drama at the Bus Barn Theater. [less-]

A touching story (in more ways than one) of sex, class, race and female awakening unfolds in the comedy "In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play"). It's 1887, a time when electricity is still new, women are wearing bustles and corsets and doctors believe that women who are depressed, nervous or listless suffer from "hysteria." The cure for this unfortunate ailment according to Dr. Givings? You guessed it: a brilliant invention called the vibrator. Can the good doctor develop his invention under the watchful eye of his young wife? Ranging from tender to clever to comical, "In the Next Room" -- coming to Mountain View's Pear Theatre -- depicts how the vibrator transitioned from a medical tool to a consumer phenomenon; it's also a charming look at marriage, intimacy and the true meaning of love.
