This weekend brings a YouTube sensation, Greek heroines and a presentation of "Bold" dances.
"Bliss (Or Emily Post is Dead)"
This clever play, as Moxie Theater puts it, blends "Greek tragedy and 'Mad Men' (minus the misogyny)."
It reimagines tragic Greek heroines as pill-popping housewives in 1960s New Jersey. Moxie founder Delicia Turner Sonnenberg directs this take on the Greek women tackling issues of race, addiction, divorce ranches, and how to host the perfect afternoon tea.
Details: 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. Moxie Theatre, 6663 El Cajon Blvd., Rolando. $23 to $43; find tickets to Moxie Theatre.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Fridays; 3 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays through Feb. 18. Casa del Prado Theatre, 1600 Village Place, Balboa Park. $8 to $15 find tickets to Collage.
Miranda Sings is a character created by Colleen Ballinger that parodies self-absorbed YouTube personalities with more confidence than talent.
She's known for her overdrawn red lips, questionable career advice and over-the-top rants about her family and personal life. Miranda Sings even had a Netflix series, "Haters Back Off."
This tour, "Miranda Sings Live ... You're Welcome" features Ballinger performing jokes, songs and other random bits of comedy.
Details: 8 p.m. Saturday. Balboa Theater, 868 4th Ave., downtown. $36.
