This week’s events        

Stage and Concerts 

Wednesday-Saturday – World premiere of “Game On” at San Jose Repertory Theatre – Down-on-their luck buddies Vinnie and Alvin care about the environment – almost as much as they care about winning at fantasy baseball. Convinced that bugs are the “new protein” poised for sustainable, commodity farming, the two fast-talking sports fanatics set out to secure venture funding. They just may be out of their league, though, as they try to close the biggest deal of their lives. Will their venture save the earth, make them rich, or will Vinnie and Alvin strike out? 7:30pm Wed-Thur; Fri-Sat 8pm, 101 Paseo de San Antonio, $29-$74, 408-367-7255; www.SJRep.com,

Wednesday-Sunday, through May 4, at San Jose Stage – “An Iliad” – Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller, who is fated to tell this story throughout history. Wed-Thur 7:30pm; Fri-Sat 8pm, Sun 2pm; $16.50-$50; San Jose Stage, 490 S. First St., 408-283-7142, www.thestage.org

Wednesday-Sunday – Comedy at the Improv – Wed 8pm The Funny Enough Comedy Show ($12). Thur 8pm Greg Proops Proopscast podcast $20; Fri 8pm and 10pm, Sat 7pm and 9pm, Greg Proops from Whose Line Is It, Anyway? And the E Channel, $22. Sunday 7pm the Bay Area 420 Comedy Show $20. 62 S. Second St. 408-280-7475 or http://sanjose.improv.com/showListCalendar.cfm

Thursday-Saturday – “Amadeus” at City Lights Theatre Co. – This provocative work weaves a confrontation between mediocrity and genius into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power. In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: genius. “Amadeus” won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1981. Thur-Sat 8pm, City Lights Theatre, Co, 529 S. Second St., $17-$30, 408-295-4200, www.cltc.org

Thursday-Saturday – “Spamalot,” by Children’s Musical Theatre – A humorous journey to find the Holy Grail quickly turns into a mission to produce a Broadway show. Monty Python’s “Spamalot” is a parody of the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” which is a parody of the legend of King Arthur and his quest for the grail. This tongue-in-cheek musical parodies not only the Arthurian legend but also the conventions of Broadway musicals. Thur 7:30pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm and 8pm, Montgomery Theatre. $24-$30; 408-288-5437, www.cmtsj.org/tickets; http://cmtsj.org/content/monty-pythons-spamalot

Thursday-Saturday, through May 11 – “A Streetcar Named Desire” – By Tennessee Williams, presented by Northside Theatre Co. This play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely “normal” young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness, 8pm, Northside Theatre Company, 48 E. William St (at 18th), $17-$22, 408-288-7820; www.northsidetheatre.com 

Friday-Saturday, through April 27 – World premiere of “Love, Laughter and Linguine” – Share the spice of life through this rousing musical that looks at the twists and turns of life. You’ll be treated to stories and celebrations seasoned with generous portions of songs old and new. A tasty treat for your heart and soul- this show will make you feel glad to be alive! Friday 8pm, Sat 3pm, The Tabard Theatre Co., Theatre on San Pedro Square, 29 N. San Pedro St. $12-$36, 800-838-3006; http://tabardtheatre.org/love_laughter_linguine.html

Fridays-Saturdays – ComedySportz and Much Improv About Nothing – See competitive improvisational teams perform. 9 pm Fri; 7 pm Sat.  Much Improv About Nothing at 9:15 pm Sat. Camera 3 Theater, 288 S. Second St.  $12-$15.  408-985-5233 or http://comedysportzsanjose.com/

Saturday-Sunday – Opera San Jose presents “Don Giovanni” – Don Giovanni plays a dangerous game of seduction with every woman he meets until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit. Mozart’s dramatic genius pervades in Don Giovanni as he weaves humor, melodrama and supernatural elements into a powerful musical masterpiece. Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Sat 8pm, Sun 3pm, also April 24 and 26 8pm and April 27 3pm; California Theatre, 345 S. First St.; $50-$110; http://sanjosetheaters.org/theaters/california-theatre/
