Come see the 171st production of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals -- France France Revolution! Thanks to Queen Reina Terror and her evil regime, Paris is in ruins.

Experience a dazzling combination of vocal artistry, costumes and acrobatics, along with works that honor centuries-old musical traditions, performed by the internationally renowned China National Beijing Opera Company and the spectacular Hubei Chime Bells National Chinese Orchestra at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. The Hubei Chime Bells National Chinese Orchestra opens the concert with works that transport listeners to ancient China with the rich tones of the country’s ancient imperial bells and traditional instruments such as the qing, a stone or jade chime; the xun, a vessel flute; and the se, a plucked zither. Breathtaking to behold in size and sound, the chime bells being performed on this evening are replicas of the 2,500-year-old bronze and stone chime bells excavated from the tomb of a Chinese ruler that was discovered in 1978. The China National Beijing Opera Company brings a rare opportunity to experience the quintessence of Chinese culture. Dressed in traditional costumes with full makeup and accompanied by beautiful music, the members of Troupe One of the China National Beijing Opera Company will portray scenes from three classic operas: Divergence and Palace of Eternal Life, as well as Uproar in Heaven, a classic Chinese story that follows the adventures of the mischievous Monkey King who wreaks havoc by rebelling against the Jade Emperor.

Food is more than just a way to stave off hunger -- it's a cultural experience. Curious foods from exotic cultures have always fascinated us, and sharing those foods with others is the best way to cross those cultural boundaries. But different cultures in different places have different views of what's tasty and what's gross, what's edible and what's inedible. The Disgusting Food Museum invites visitors to consider those distinctions and challenge their own dietary preferences while viewing, smelling and tasting some unique foods from around the world, including casu marzu (maggot-infested cheese from Sardinia), hákarl (well-aged Icelandic shark) and surströmming (Swedish fermented herring). Do you dare smell the world’s stinkiest cheese? Or taste sweets made with metal cleansing chemicals? Test your intestinal fortitude at this tribute to culinary curiosities at A+D Museum in Los Angeles.

You get The Prom, starring Tony Award nominee Brooks Ashmanskas (Something Rotten!), Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone) and two-time Tony Award nominee Christopher Siever (Shrek!) leading a cast of 27, at the Longacre Theatre in New York City.

The disco-fueled interactive dance party known as The Donkey Show, very loosely inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, puts you smack in the middle of the action in a funky Cambridge lounge setting. Featuring two full bars and a dance floor, OBERON's Diane Paulus-created wonderland was inspired by Studio 54 in its heyday, when celebrities and art icons would mix and mingle with kids from Queens, and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack would be shaking the speakers. While you -- and the rest of the audience -- drink, dance to disco classics or just check out the action, the motley crew of characters in this glammed-up, sex-fueled version of Shakespeare's play re-enact the hilariously chaotic tale of a magic elixir that wreaks havoc at the nightclub. But it's mostly just a cool boogie-filled bash.

There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta, who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi and librettist Francesco Maria Piave have given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now Lyric Opera of Chicago brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

This Tony Award-nominated show is an intoxicating musical fable filled with humor, heart and the extraordinary music of three-time Grammy Award winner Keb’Mo’. In a small Alabama town, a mysterious blues guitar-playing stranger named Marvell Thunder arrives at the door of the Dupree family and brings a challenge for the offspring of late Jaguar Dupree, the only man who ever outplayed him in a "cutting contest." Thunder offers Glory Dupree, Jaguar’s blind daughter, a Faustian bargain: if he wins the contest he gets Jaguar’s guitar, and if she wins she gets her sight back. In 2013, Thunder Knocking on the Door brought the house down at every performance. Creative Cauldron couldn’t resist the urge to turn the cauldron into a “juke joint” once again and bring this crowd-pleasing musical back to life for its 10th anniversary.
