COMEDY: A popular comic among the homoseuxally-inclined male, Margaret Cho returns to her home town to wow, shock, and slap the knees of her adoring and rabid fans. In addition to bringing on the funny, she sometimes touches the heart, too. Aw. Liam Sullivan (AKA, Kelly, the guy who did that "Shoes" YouTube hit.) (Can't make it tonight? Don't fret: she performs through Sunday.)

OPERA: Giacomo Pucci's classic (i.e., Rent but from, like, totally a long time ago) makes audiences weep tonight over at the Fort Mason's Cowell Theater. Expect soaring arias, lots of crying, and [spoiler alert] a fantastic stabbing-death finale.
