Beach House

Sun., Aug. 19, 7 p.m.

The dynamic intensity of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, better known as dream pop duo Beach House, is perfectly encapsulated in the imagery their name suggests — turbulence and tranquility with a view. The band has a vast catalogue of dizzying and layered emotional soundscapes that sound as though they have a full band backing them. Beach House swapped the sea for the steering wheel on their latest record, 2018’s 7,with its heady, road-trip feel. By departing ever-so-slightly from the religious overtones of 2015’s Depression Cherry, and far removed from the untethered catharsis of 2012’s Bloom, Beach House uses 7 as a vehicle to forge new territory. $32+

Wicked

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 2

Before there was Dorothy — and her little dog, too — there was Glinda (the Good Witch) and Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West), two friends from opposite sides of the poppy field. Opposing personalities and viewpoints collide (namely, that of their reactions to the Wizard’s corrupt government), which leads to Elphaba’s eventual journey into wickedness. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell), Wicked the musical combines the alternative telling of the trippy and timeless classic film with Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. $63+
