  • Taking the Lead

    The discerning theatergoer may be able to distinguish between screwball comedy and farcé but the less sophisticated among us find Adobe Theater’s Leading Ladies, which opens Friday, Jan. 17 at 7:30pm, to be more of a romp. Ken Ludwig’s play directed by Lewis Hauser centers on two Shakespearean actors from England trying to bilk a dying Pennsylvania woman out of her fortune by crossdressing and pretending to be her nieces. Unexpected romance and full-on shenanigans ensue. Tickets for opening weekend are $15. (Clarke Condé)

  • Welcome to Club 27

    When Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning nearly 9 years ago, she was well on her way to becoming a rocanrol legend. Although the breathy contralto only possessed the funk for a few precious years, Winehouse wielded the groovy mess with graceful aplomb. Of course, being legendary and all that lends itself to one's own postmortem tribute show. Dear Amy offers an intensely accurate depiction of the artist and her work, featuring the creator of this Instagram sensation that became a successful touring act, Amy “Frankie Jordan” McIntosh. The show lands at The Stage @ Santa Ana Star Casino and Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 7pm. McIntosh's 75-minute set includes a live 9-piece band and is endorsed by Winehouse's father, Mitch, who typically eschews tributes to his daughter. Tickets for this 21-and-over musical tour de force range in price from $42 to $52, so don't say “no, no, no,” just go, go, go! (August March)
