Golabek, seated onstage at the piano, performs some of the world's most beloved piano music while sharing harrowing true tales of her mother's life. As a young Jewish pianist in 1938 Vienna, Golabek's mother, Lisa Jura, dreamt of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. But when she was swept up in the "Kindertransport" to London in an attempt to be protected from the Nazi regime, everything about Jura's life was upended -- except her love of music. The "Los Angeles Times" calls "The Pianist of Willesden Lane" "an arresting, deeply affecting triumph."

What they aren't planning on is being picked off one-by-one by the killer who stalks this rented house -- once the site of a mass murder of 15 teenage girls ... their bloodstains still soaked into the floorboards beneath hastily replaced carpeting. Now the personal vanities of this house's current occupants will be their undoing, as their vacation becomes a fight for survival. From writer-director Jane Clark ("Meth Head"), "Crazy Bitches" plays with familiar horror film tropes in a fun, fresh way, gleefully terrorizing its characters -- and its viewers -- along the way.

     Shot in its banned director's home country without permission, "Manuscripts Don't Burn" is an angry meditation on state violence and censorship in Iran. Forbidden from pursuing his craft for 20 years by the Iranian government, filmmaker Mohammad Rasoulof shot "Manuscripts" in total secrecy to tell the story of two thuggish state enforcers on a mission to kidnap and interrogate a dissident writer. Within this framework of a suspenseful thriller, Rasoulof weaves vignettes of authors and intellectuals who live their lives under constant surveillance and threat from government security. The result is a chilling indictment of the corrupt, often murderous upper echelons of Iranian politics.

     The man who inspired Al Pacino's character in Sidney Lumet's "Dog Day Afternoon" finally gets a film of his own in the documentary biopic "The Dog". This intimate portrait of the late John Wojtowicz explores the vivacious character of a man who was a libertine's libertine, taking multiple wives and lovers, both women and men. Wojtowicz's life took a decisive turn when, in August 1972, he tried to rob a Brooklyn bank in order to pay for his lover's sex-reassignment surgery. The ensuing 14-hour hostage situation became a live TV news sensation. Three years later, "Dog Day" came out in theaters and three years after that, "The Dog" (as Wojtowicz came to be known) was released from prison.

     The feuding Futrelle sisters put the "fun" in dysfunction in "Dearly Beloved", the hilarious and heart-warming production at Coronado Playhouse. The rumor mill in Fayro, Texas, has been working overtime from the moment the sisters started planning the "wedding of the century." No surprise there -- the sisters have been Town Topic No. 1 since the breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing group, The Sermonettes. But now caught up in a Texas twister of gossip, God and gunfire, they desperately attempt to pull off the "Gone with the Wind"-themed nuptials ... even as the bride goes missing. Gary Cohen directs this Southern-fried comedy written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.

     Kids will be kids (and so will adults) in this dark comedy of manners ... minus the manners. In "God of Carnage", two sets of high-strung parents meet to work things out after a violent playground scrape between their young sons. But as the evening progresses and the alcohol flows, the couples' behavior deteriorates from stoically civilized to outrageously juvenile as accusations are hurled and secrets are revealed. A hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted play by Yasmina Reza ("Art") won the Tony Award in 2009. Two years later, Roman Polanski ("Rosemary's Baby") remade it into an acclaimed film starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly.

This riveting show nabbed three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family's struggles with the effects of bipolar disorder. Each character's journey in this San Diego Musical Theatre production is further punctuated by powerful music scored by Tom Kitt ("American Idiot"). Featuring 30 original songs, including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," "Next to Normal" is, in the words of "The New York Times", "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."

     Surf's up -- and murder's afoot -- as "Psycho Beach Party" hangs 10 at Ocean Beach Playhouse. Playwright Charles Busch ("Die, Mommie, Die!", "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife") mashes up '50s psychodramas, '60s surfer films and '80s slasher horror into a truly madcap comedy. Chicklet Forrest desperately wants to be a part of the cool kid crowd on Malibu Beach, circa 1962. This ambition is slightly complicated by the fact that her personality is not so much "split" as shattered among several personalities, including a black check-out girl, an elderly talk show host, a male model and an accounting firm. When one of her personalities goes rogue, Chicklet is in for some rough waters in this hilarious romp from Ocean Beach Ensemble Experiment.
