Nunsense  
Crown City Theatre Company Nunsense
 
Five of the 19 surviving Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia accidentally killed the other fifty-two residents of the convent while they were off playing bingo. With no money in the kitty to pay for the burials they decide to stage a variety show in the School auditorium to raise the necessary funds. Participating in the project are Mother Superior Mary Regina, a former circus performer who can not resist the spotlight; her competitive but dignified rival, second-in-command Sister Mary Hubert; Sister Robert Anne, a streetwise nun from Brooklyn; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is determined to be the world's first ballerina nun; and wacky, childlike Sister Mary Amnesia, who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. The entertainment that they present includes solo star turns, madcap dance routines, and an audience quiz.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum  
Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
 
Crafty, charismatic, wisecracking slave Pseudolus is your guide through Cabrillo Music Theatre's production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, a freewheeling, Tony Award-winning farce set in ancient Rome. Determined to buy, win or steal his freedom by any means necessary, Pseudolus makes a deal with his wealthy master's son, Hero: If he can help him win the affections of Philla, a beautiful courtesan who lives next door, Hero will set him free. What follows in this production at Thousand Oaks' Scherr Forum Theatre is a hysterical series of lies, slammed doors and cases of mistaken identity as Pseudolus tries to hold up his end of the bargain.

Thom Pain  
Geffen Playhouse Thom Pain
 
The Office's Rainn Wilson stars in Will Eno's critically acclaimed one-man show Thom Pain (based on nothing). A finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize, this one-of-a-kind show ensnares the entire audience in a hilarious coming-of-age comedy crossed with a heart-rending drama. Wilson plays Thom, an enigmatic man searching through the wreckage of his life to uncover the remains of his childhood. Gradually, the biting humor of his rambling monologue gives way to a moving portrait of desire and lost innocence. The New York Times calls playwright Eno "Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation," and this exciting existential production proves it. It's a self-reflexive theatrical experience that somehow leaves you both filled with despair and thrilled to be alive. Obie Award winner Oliver Butler directs this "small masterpiece" (The New York Times) at the Geffen Playhouse.
