"Bedrooms and Boyfriends 2"
This collection of short plays (for adults-only audiences) are all set in a bedroom. It features the premieres of three new works by Samantha Ginn, Jonathan Hammond and Michael Mizerany.
Mizerany's "My Life As a Sitcom" confronts sitcom tropes; Hammond's "Delivery" is about a mysterious pizza delivery man; and Ginn's "Pigs In a Blanket" deals with a connection made with a sexy singing telegram.
Details: 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. Diversionary Theatre, 4545 Park Blvd., University Heights. $20 to $25; buy tickets.
Max Raabe and Palast Orchester
Max Raabe & Palast Orchester returns to San Diego with another show full of class and 1920s-era music.
Together with Raabe's 12-piece orchestra, he channels the spirit and decadence of the German Weimar with dancers, vintage sounds and fancy clothes.
The musician is also known for adding his signature style to pop songs, including Britney Spears' "Oops! ... I Did It Again."
Details: 8 p.m. on Friday. Balboa Theatre, 868 4th Ave., downtown. $25 to $75; find tickets.
