Dozens of new plays and musicals open every week in theaters across New York City. Here are the shows that begin previews or open this week. Who knows? You may catch the next Avenue Q or Rent. Click on the show title for more information.

Are You There, Zeus? It’s Me, Electra - Electra is determined to avenge her father Agamemnon's death. Unfortunately, she's powerless - a teenager stuck at home with nothing but a Greek chorus that just won't go away. She will need to band together with her long-lost brother Orestes, their dim-witted sister Chrysothemis, their trusted friend Pylades and a torrent of raging hormones to set her plot for revenge in motion.

Brigadoon - In Lerner and Loewe's classic musical, a mysterious villageemerges in a shrouded glen for only one day every century. When two modern tourists stumble upon this enchanted town, steeped in 18th-century quaintness, one falls deeply in love with a beautiful local woman. Will he make the necessary sacrifice to stay with her? Featuring such enduring songs as "Almost Like Being In Love" and "The Heather on the Hill."

Creature - In medieval England, a young woman named Margery goes mad after the birth of her first child and is tormented by devils. One night, she is restored to sanity by a vision of Jesus Christ and in gratitude she devotes her life to God. Battling her appetites for earthly pleasures and her unsuitability for religious vocation, she becomes increasingly fanatical, alienating her friends and family and endangering her own life.

Idiot Savant - Marie asks the Idiot Savant, "But what makes certain words - magic?" What follows is a wild theatrical odyssey that could only have sprung from the fantastical mind of Richard Foreman, New York's legendary avant-garde genius. This new work starring Willem Dafoe is a philosophical comedy, in the great tradition of Ionesco and Preston Sturges. From precise existential and metaphysical acrobatics, to a ridiculous game of inter-species golf with a Giant Duck.

The Late Christopher Bean - All hell breaks loose when a celebrated painter's early works are traced to the humble home of a country doctor. Both a biting satire on the destructive power of greed and a touching view of a family in turmoil, this feisty comedy will have you cheering for the most unlikely heroines.

The Long Count - A uniquely creative collaboration between musicians/twin brothers  Bryce and Aaron Dessner (acclaimed guitarists and songwriters for indie rock band The National) and world-renowned visual artist Matthew Ritchie.

Love, Linda: The Life of Mrs. Cole Porter - A new one-woman musical, starring acclaimed jazz vocalist Stevie Holland following the story of Linda and Cole Porter's life together, through Linda's eyes. Though Cole Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamor-filled life.

The Misunderstanding -  This 1948 Camus play concerns a man who returns home to Europe to be reunited with his mother and sister following a 20n year absence. As he anxiously awaits to reveal his identity to them, notions of love and family take on chilling new meanings in the hideous circumstances of his last few hours.

Or,  - Aphra Behn is getting out of the spy trade and into show biz, if she can only write her play without interruptions from her love life--celebrity Nell Gwynne, King Charles II, and double-agent William Scott -- among others. While war rages and Aphra and her friends celebrate free love, cross-dressing and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s start to look a lot like the 1960s.
