LANGSTON HUGHES PERFORMING ARTS INSTITUTE - 'HELLO DARLINS'
THRU OCTOBER 26

'Hello Darlins' honors comedian Jackie 'Moms' Mabley. Billed as 'The Funniest Woman in the World' Mabley was a pioneer in her field and a black woman who pushed the boundaries of taste, politics, and race. Her career spanned from the 1920s on the Chitlin' Circuit well into the 1970s, leaving behind a legacy of over 20 albums and memorable appearances on many of the popular variety and talk shows of the day, including Ed Sullivan and The Smothers Brothers.

Written by Seattle playwright Dan Owens, directed by Artistic Director, Jacqueline Moscou and starring Josephine Howell as 'Moms,' 'Hello Darlins' will take you on a journey fraught with challenging material, raucous humor, and surprises about who this woman was.

Performance dates: Thursdays-Sundays thru October 26, at 7 p.m., with Saturday/Sunday matinees at 2 p.m., at Langston Hughes Performing Art Institute (104 17th Ave. S.), Saturday and Sunday, September 28 & 29; Thursdays-Sundays, October 10-26.

THEATRE 22 - '5TH OF JULY'
THRU OCTOBER 26

On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays thru October 26, at 8 p.m.(with pay-what you-can industry night performance on Tuesday, October 22), at West of Lenin (203 N 34th St.), Theatre 22 launches their inaugural season with openly-Gay playwright Lanford Wilson's celebrated play, '5th of July.'

At a sprawling farmhouse in rural Missouri, Ken, a legless Vietnam veteran and his lover, Jed, welcome a disparate group of colorful old friends and family for an impromptu reunion. As they reminisce, revealing lost dreams and buried resentments; they expose the shattered hopes of their college days at Berkeley and the unhealed trauma of the Viet-nam War. At once poignant and marvelously funny, '5th of July' is a compassionate portrait of a generation that is trying to transcend the disillusionment of the seventies, learn what can be salvaged from the past, and find the courage to begin anew. The play is sharp and funny and, in the final essence, deeply revealing of lost hopes and dreams and of the bitterness that must be fought back, if one is to perceive the good that life can offer.

Tickets: $20-general; $12-student/military/senior (62+). www.brownpapertickets.com/event/395944; www.theatre22.org

ENDANGERED SPECIES PROJECT - 'DARK OF THE MOON'
On Monday, October 14, doors at 6:30 p.m., show at 7 p.m., at Stage One Theatre, North Seattle Community College (9600 College Way N.), Endangered Species Project pre-sents a staged reading of 'Dark of the Moon,' by Howard Richardson and William Berney, an unlikely Broadway and London hit, from 1945. It is set in the Smokey Mountains, and the story, borrowed from a variant of the ancient folk song 'Barbara Allen,' is about a witch boy who falls in love with a human girl and wants to leave his witch ways behind. But 'Barbara Allen' is not a song with a happy ending

'Now, Barbara Allen had a red, red dress
And one she had of blue,
And many men did Barbara love,
But never was she true.'
It is a rich and strange and beautiful piece of work, and difficult to describe. Like Romeo and Juliet told by Edgar Allen Poe, or as if Truman Capote set out to write an episode of True Blood, it's creepy and funny and sad. It's perfect October fare.

NORTHWEST NETWORK - COMMUNITY ACTION: HATE VIOLENCE - COMMUNITY DISCUSSION & ACTION PLANNING
On Tuesday, October 15, from 6:30-8 p.m., at All Pilgrims Church (500 Broadway E.), join the Northwest Network of LGBT Survivors of Abuse for a conversation to discuss anti-LGBT hate and bias-related violence.

What do you think are the most pressing issues surrounding anti-LGBT hate violence? Come share your concerns, experiences and most importantly your vision.

In communities across the country, we are seeing an increase in reports of hate and bias attacks and harassment against LGBTQ people. Not only do these reports show an in-crease in the number of incidents, but an increase in the intensity of violence and harm, especially against Transgender people.

We believe that it is important for our communities to come together to engage with each other about our experiences and our visions of communities free from violence. Please join us the third Tuesdays of the month in October, November and December to participate in these critical conversations. (NOTE: November and December meetings will be held at Queer Youth Space (911 E. Pike St.).) www.nwnetwork.org

GAY CITY ARTS - 'FLAWED/DIGITAL WEAVINGS' BY SYNVIA WHITNEY
Through November 11

Gay City Arts (517 E. Pike St.) presents 'FLAWED/digital weavings' by Syniva Whitney.

'FLAWED' started with taking digital images of moles, wrinkles and aberrations of the internal and external bodies of the artist and friends and family. Then woven by hand along with disposable party ribbons, cheap holiday tinsel, industrial plastics, VHS tape, soft cottons, wire and wool. Relationships develop between the microscopic and the macro-scopic, the constructive and destructive, the party and the day after. These pieces tell stories, threaten health, and define identities. They are part of a whole, and yet can be ex-ploded by their role in a person's body: a mark that invokes a sexual power, a scar that is a reminder of a violent past, or a cluster of interior cells that slowly takes over, a presence as hard to imagine as the far reaches of the universe

'FLAWED' is presented in conjunction with Gay City Arts, through which Gay City collaborates with local LGBT artists to galvanize an audience for Queer arts, foster the de-velopment of LGBT artists, and facilitate artistic excellence across a wide range of disciplines, including theater, music, dance, film, spoken word, literary and visual arts. www.gaycity.org.
