Shake A Leg.
It's hard to remember a more anticipated movie release than this month's seventh Star Wars installment. Rightly so, there's a billion bucks on the line. But after the whole Jar Jar fiasco, a lot of folks are wondering if it can possibly live up to the hype.

The basic premise is pretty rad, after all: You go to a bar, you watch a Shakespeare play performed live and, the whole time, you drink and be merry. Currently, Shakespeare in the Bar is on its fifth production. After four performances of comedies, the troupe has now moved onto its first tragedy, Richard III. It's a bold choice, considering how comedies tend to be crowd pleasers. Read more about the show here. — Angela Jones
