BOW JEST: Cupid's arrow hits some unexpected targets in this Shakespearean tale of love and actors.

Not to be confused with the swashbuckling English novel and its many movie adaptations (that’s Beau Geste), this stage comedy presents a young Jewish woman trying to fool her meddling parents by hiring an actor to play her perfect boyfriend while keeping her real goy-friend—a WASP-y executive named (of all things) Chris Kringle—under wraps. Naturally, things get complicated when she begins to have feelings for the actor, and hijinks inevitably ensue. The production runs through March 10.Beau Jest
Fri, 7:30pm, $31+
Tabard Theater, San Jose.
