Looking to take in a show but overwhelmed by the amount of choices?  Look no further. "On Stage" host Frank DiLella will be curating a list of “must-see” shows every week, directing you to the best of Broadway, off-Broadway and beyond. Here's his picks for this week.

“Topdog/Underdog” at the John Golden Theatre

Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Topdog/Underdog” will have its final performance on Sunday, Jan. 15 at the John Golden Theatre.

“The Old Man and the Pool” at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre

A little further uptown at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Center, comedian Mike Birbiglia is holding court and will have the audience both laughing and crying with his latest solo show “The Old Man and the Pool.”

“The Old Man and the Pool” will shutter on Sunday, Jan. 15.
