It's that time of the week, theater lovers! With the weekend set to kick off at any moment - personally, we like to consider Thursday morning at 12:01 a.m. the official start of the weekend (that's directed primarily to the Dowager Countess of Grantham who quite clearly didn't understand what actually constitutes a 'weekend') - so we are back with a few suggestions of our own to help make your job easier. There are some new shows opening, others which are continuing their runs and still more which will be winding up their slate of performances this weekend!

With his verbal skills, dancing, and hilarious sense of humor, Q Money initially got his hometown of Cleveland talking in 2016, but the whole game took notice shortly after. Cementing himself as a social media force, his riotous skits, viral videos and consistent content amassed a faithful audience. Leveraging that foundation, he seamlessly pivoted towards what he aimed to do all along: music. His breakout hit 'Work' quickly eclipsed over 9 million YouTube views and 2.9 million-plus Spotify streams, paving the way for the fan favorite mixtape, Neva Had Shit. The latter flaunted 'Whole Ticket' [feat. YFN Lucci], 'Regrets' [feat. Moneybagg Yo] and 'Knot' [feat. Money Man], to name a few. 2018 saw him land a high-profile deal with Think It's A Game Records and Warner Records.
