Deep in the heart of the capital, a murderous political intrigue unfolds as the Sacramento Theatre Company stages "Julius Caesar", the Shakespeare "history play" that remains intensely relevant to contemporary audiences. More scandalous than "Scandal" and more devious than "House of Cards", "Julius Caesar" finds its title character locked in a life-and-death struggle for power with his former "friends, Romans, countrymen," Brutus, Casca and Cassius. But in this staging of the play, Cassius and Casca will be played by women and the whole production will be set in a hypothetical near-future America. The actions of these friends-turned-conspirators set off a civil war at the dawn of the Roman Empire in the original telling, and in this modern version you'll get to see what happens when celebrity and politics are blurred and money matters more than policy.

Perhaps most popularly known as the inspiration for the musical "My Fair Lady", George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" comes to FreeFall Stage in Sacramento. This classic satire is a brilliant attack on inequality amongst the classes and the sexes. On a bet, phoneticist Henry Higgins sets out to transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a society lady, but doesn't count on his "creation" having a mind of her own. This witty tale from the master playwright delighted and scandalized its first audience in 1912 and remains as relevant as ever today. To add an extra bit of fun and romance, the special Valentine's Day performance includes a dessert bar featuring a variety of yummy treats, apple cider and coffee -- all set in a candlelit, café-style setting.

"A Flea in Her Ear" brings together a salacious and scheming cast of characters at the Hotel Coq D'Or with uproarious results. This classic bedroom farce was originally written in 1907 by Georges Feydeau, at the height of the Belle Époque era, but its bawdy humor and hilarious plot twists have kept it alive and on the stage for over a hundred years, delighting audiences again and again. The madcap plot is kicked off by a wife who sends a note from an non-existent admirer to her husband to test his fidelity, but the letter delivers nothing but laughs when it somehow ends up in the wrong hands. Revel in the mistaken identities and misplaced jealousies when "A Flea in Her Ear" flies into the Woodland Opera House. [less-]

Marc Blitzstein's musical "The Cradle will Rock", coming to the stage at the Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Sacramento City College, is so timely and applicable to today's political situation that you'd never know it was originally staged over 75 years ago.

This musical was originally considered so scandalous that the U.S. government tried to shut it down. Rarely performed these days, "The Cradle Will Rock" features a 30-member cast and a live five-member band. [less-]

Legendary Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim is at his bloody best in "Sweeney Todd", his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and the beastly baker he befriends. Now you can experience the Tony-winning score, which "The New York Times" called "Sondheim's most ravishing," in this production from Davis Musical Theatre Company. Set in 19th-century London, the musical tells the tale of a barber on a quest for revenge, who teams up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett to slit the throats of customers and destroy the evidence by baking the bodies into pies. A perennial favorite since it premiered in 1979, the darkly comical "Sweeney Todd" is equal parts haunting and hilarious. [less-]
