Hershey Felder in Our Great Tchaikovsky

Buy Tickets $30 - $60 $40 - $78

Playwright, pianist and actor Hershey Felder is famed for bringing musical greats like Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Franz Liszt and more to life via a series of engaging and acclaimed solo shows. His latest subject is Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who's not only considered one of Russia's greatest composers -- he's widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. Renowned for world-famous compositions like Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and countless ferocious and brilliant symphonies, Tchaikovsky died mysteriously at the age of 53, only nine days after conducting the premiere of his enigmatic Symphony No. 6. Now, Felder pulls back the curtain on the curious life of the beloved and tormented composer at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

Globetrotters in Oakland: Insane Hoops & High Comedy

Buy Tickets $19 - $44 $41.25 - $81.50

With their amazing athletic, acrobatic and clowning skills, the team of insanely talented men and women known as the Harlem Globetrotters is sorta like the greatest circus troupe you've ever seen -- but with way more slam dunks. And Hi-Lite, Too Tall, El Gato and the others know how to do more than just shoot hoops -- they'll wow you with ball-handling wizardry, rim-rattling jams and four-pointers shot from 30 feet away, not to mention their really clever comedy bits. The 'Trotters have been one of the best live shows around for more than 90 years and count Henry Kissinger, Whoopi Goldberg and Pope Francis as honorary members -- though you probably won't see that trio making any under-the-knee passes on this 2018 World Tour. But the hometown Harlem team is making a stop at Oakland's Oracle Arena to play the long-suffering Washington Generals ... and you're humming "Sweet Georgia Brown" right now, aren't you?

Pinter's The Birthday Party With Judith Ivey

Buy Tickets $12 - $54 $15 - $90

Two-time Tony-winner Judith Ivey (Hurlyburly, Will & Grace, Grey's Anatomy) stars in Harold Pinter's darkly comic classic at the Geary Theater in San Francisco. When asked what his surrealist plays were really all about, the Nobel and Tony-winning playwright famously replied, "the weasel under the cocktail cabinet." Whether you prefer that definition, or describe it as a "comedy of menace," The Birthday Party is pure Pinter. It revolves around Petey, Meg and their long-time tenant Stanley, a retired pianist, who lead a quiet life at a seaside boarding house ... until two strangers show up. Their presence turns Stanley's surprise birthday celebration into something much more sinister, which includes a high-stakes game of blindman's bluff and a mysterious blackout. A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli and Stratford Fest star Scott Wentworth are also set to appear in the company's new production.

As part of the San Francisco Symphony's celebration of Leonard Bernstein's centennial, Maestro Michael Tilson Thomas conducts a concert version of his comic operetta Candide, complete with acclaimed vocalists and chorus at Davies Hall. A true American legend, Bernstein may be best known for Broadway musicals like West Side Story and On the Town, but Candide's proven popular over the years too, as it details a madcap odyssey around the world.

Along the journey you'll be treated to renditions of such memorable tunes as "Glitter and Be Gay," "Make Our Garden Grow" and "The Best of All Possible Worlds," performed by Jay Armstrong Johnson, Meghan Picerno and the San Francisco Symphony Chorus.

Arsenio Hall is one of those rare comics so popular, he comes with his own chant. In fact, not so long ago, you could mention "Arsenio" and everyone in the room would start whooping like audience members sitting in the "dog pound" section on The Arsenio Hall Show. It's still easy to get excited by Hall, who in addition to making history as the first black late-night talk show host, starred in movies with Eddie Murphy (Coming to America), appeared on Chappelle's Show and even won Celebrity Apprentice. But of all the venues for his amazing talent -- from screens big to small -- he is best live and up close on the stand-up stage. His energy, his charisma, and his effortless (and seemingly boundless) humor will be on display when this comedy legend headlines the San Jose Improv.

The show begins with some silly, quick-moving improv games (Think Whose Line Is It Anyway?). Then the Players raise the stakes with longer, more connected scenes so good they seem scripted. But they're not: Everything that happens at Black Cat Licorice Theater is discovered in the moment.

Moses Storm ... Yep, that's his real name, and he's got plenty of jokes to share about it, along with a wealth of thoughts on drug addicts, cheating a marathon and surviving a "L.A. winter." A Los Angeles-based stand-up, host and sketch comedian, Storm has been featured on KCRW several times, 2015's Last Comic Standing and stars on Hulu's 4 to 9ers, NBC's About a Boy and the horror flick Unfriended. He keeps his live comedy chops strong through shows at The Nerdist Theater and UCB Sunset, and recently starred in his own Youtube film #MODERNMILLENNIAL. Catch this talented comedian at the Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club in the San Jose area.
