From the Emmy Award winning duo who gave us TV's groundbreaking animated comedy series 'South Park' and the critically acclaimed co-creator of Broadway's Tony Award winning comedy 'Avenue Q' comes 'The Book of Mormon', a satiric comedy about two Mormon elders sent to Uganda for a mission. However, their naivete and gullibility will send their mission off the roof and have them clashing head to head with the local tribe. 'Mormon' is a comical, sensible and highly entertaining musical that has proven its worth nine times over in the 2011 Tony Awards, thanks to its talented cast, smart and vibrant employment of parody, and catchy scores that makes The Daily Show's Jon Stewart "so angry" simply because it is "so good."

In a Vietnamese refugee camp in Arkansas circa 1975, two bereaved Saigon natives find love in a strange new land. So goes Vietgone, a bold new romantic comedy by "geek theater" impresario Qui Nguyen, an artist famous in New York for productions packed full of martial arts, sword fights and puppetry. Based on the lives of his own parents, Vietgone is a slightly more subtle affair, but still reflects Nguyen's irreverent humor and pop-culture-obsessed aesthetic as it crisscrosses between the traumatic evacuation of Saigon and a turbulent yet passionate tale of love in the rural United States. See American Conservatory Theater's production of this wildly imaginative, "culturally savvy comedy" (The New York Times) at A.C.T Strand Theater in San Francisco.
It's 1985 and aspiring rockstar Robbie Heart lives in his grandmother's basement biding his time as New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of every party -- until his fiancee leaves him at the altar. Robbie promptly falls for Julia, an admiring young waitress. Unfortunately, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street tycoon, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. Based on the hit Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore romantic comedy, with a score straight out of the 1980s pop songbook, The Wedding Singer at San Francisco's Victoria Theatre takes audiences back to a time when hair was big, collars were up and greed was good.
