The “super” used when describing rock supergroup The Winery Dogs is not marketing hype. Bassist Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Mr. Big) was named “Best Rock Bass Player” by Guitar Player Magazine an astonishing five times. Drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theatre) was inducted into the Rock Drummer Hall of Fame at age 37, the youngest member ever. And Richie Kotzen (Poison) is simply one of the most respected rock guitarists alive — Fender Guitars has named two Telecaster models after him. Now these three incredible talents combine in The Winery Dogs, a band with a classic rock-influenced sound and a platinum pedigree. Catch them in concert at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz.

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.

One of the top draws on American Idol ‘s fifth season, Chris Daughtry had audiences voting like mad with his bold performances of Fuel’s “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” and Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line.” He even impressed Fuel so much that they offered him a spot in the band, but he turned it down to start his own group instead — thus Daughtry was born. The band’s first album was the fastest-selling debut in SoundScan history, with five hits making the top 40. They’ve even hit the road with Bon Jovi, the Goo Goo Dolls, Nickelback and more. Now Daughtry will bring their brooding, energetic rock sound to The Mountain Winery in Saratoga.

Legendary Opera of Excess Falstaff

Buy Tickets $39 - $42 $78 - $85

The product of a collaboration between Arrigo Boito and Giuseppe Verdi, Falstaff is a comic opera unlike any other. The title character, Sir John Falstaff, is so full of himself that he manages to take credit even when he’s the subject of ridicule. Verdi relished the opportunity to write a comic opera (only two of his 28 operas were comedies), and produced a witty, dynamic and elegant piece. See the humor for yourself in this West Bay Opera production at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.

Significant Other: A Bittersweet Comedy

Buy Tickets $20 - $36 $45 - $60

What do you do when all your best friends suddenly start getting married? Forced to systematically transition from best friend to bridesman as each of his girlfriends gets married, Jordan Berman has decided it’s time to start looking for a Mr. Right to call his own. This proves, however, to be a most uneasy transition. The New York Times hailed Significant Other as “an absolutely wonderful new play … as richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring.” Laugh (and wince) along as he wades through a string of workplace crushes, painfully awkward first dates and other romantic misadventures on his search for true love in this bittersweet comedy from Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews). After a successful off-Broadway and Broadway run, Significant Other takes the stage of the San Francisco Playhouse.

Rhinoceros: An Absurdist Masterpiece

Buy Tickets $10 - $72 $15 - $120

In the opening moments of Eugene Ionesco’s masterpiece of absurdist satire, a rhinoceros rampages through a village square. At the local café, people argue over what they saw. Was it really a rhino, or just fake news? As the eccentric villagers shed refined façades for hides and horns — smashing windows and crushing flowerbeds — rumpled everyman Berenger faces a desperate choice: take a stand against the armored brutes or join the mindless herd? This outrageously comedic story of a civilized community shifting from defiance to compliance is chillingly resonant and riotously funny. From Tony Award–winning director Frank Galati comes an all-new adaptation of this wickedly entertaining show about power, conformism and mass culture. Don’t miss Rhinoceros at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater.
