    Fri., Oct. 19, 8 p.m.

    With the firing of longtime guitarist and singer Lindsey Buckingham earlier this year, Fleetwood Mac lost one of the authors of the light-rock sound that positioned them among the best-selling bands in the world. The members of Tusk, a world-class tribute act, stay true to the music of the group’s most popular lineup: Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, and Christine and John McVie. Having made music together for more than 25 years, the five members of Tusk forego wigs and gimmicks in favor of authentic replications of signature songs such as “Landslide,” “Gypsy” and “Go Your Own Way.” at Barre Opera House in Barre. Barre/Montpelier (map). $25-33.

    First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the reality of cohabiting with someone you’ve promised to love and cherish for the rest of your life. For Paul and Corie Bratter, the main characters in Neil Simon’s comedy Barefoot in the Park, that last part is the challenge. The Essex Community Players kick off their 60th season by reprising the play, made famous by a 1967 film adaptation starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford. Adam Cunningham directs Lauren Patterson and Andy Sebranek as the young lovebirds learning to navigate marriage after the honeymoon. at Essex Memorial Hall in Essex. Chittenden County (map). $14-18.

    As if William Shakespeare’s 17th-century tragedy Macbeth weren’t dark enough, Marble Valley Players has put an end-of-the-world spin on it. Directed by Jenna Carlson, MVP’s production is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Here, prompted by the prophecy of three witches, a power-hungry general commits murder in his quest to be king of Scotland. Once on the throne, the royal is overcome by feelings of guilt and paranoia over his evil deed. Murder, dark magic and political intrigue are at play in this centuries-old examination of the consequences of unbridled ambition. at West Rutland Town Hall Theater in West Rutland. Rutland/Killington (map). $12-15.

    For the first time, fans of Howard Frank Mosher can see the late Vermont author’s work come to life onstage. Lost Nation Theater founder and resident playwright Kim Allen Bent harnessed his love for Mosher’s 1977 debut novel, Disappearances, and adapted it for the stage. LNT performers act out the larger-than-life story of a man named Québec Bill and his teenage son, Wild Bill, who run Canadian whiskey in Prohibition-era Vermont and meet a few colorful characters along the way. Describing the tall tale in a press release, Bent says, “Its characters are totally authentic old-time Vermonters, raised to mythic dimensions by [Mosher’s] loving and insightful imagination.” at Lost Nation Theater, Montpelier City Hall in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). $10-60.
