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.). Tickets: $20/$15-general; $10-student/senior. www.brownpapertickets.com/event/431678.

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

RECLAIMING PROSPERITY - 'LIVING WAGE ORDINANCES: THE IMPACTS OF HIGHER WAGES AND LABOR STANDARDS ON LOCAL ECONOMIES'
San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Jose have all passed living wage ordinances for workers at airports, and beyond, and have lived to tell the tale. On a local ballot this No-vember, the Sea-Tac Good Jobs Initiative would give hospitality and transportation workers at Sea-Tac a living wage of $15 an hour and other benefits such as paid sick leave.

On Monday, October 28, from 7:30-9 p.m., at Town Hall (8th Ave. & Seneca St.), the Reclaiming Prosperity speaker series invites you to learn how other communities have thrived with living wages in a discussion with California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who advocated for a living wage at San Francisco International Airport as a San Francisco Supervisor and later for a citywide ordinance; Bob Brownstein, Director of Policy and Research at Working Partnerships USA, who was instrumental in developing San Jose's Living Wage ordinance; and Peter Hall, Associate Professor of Urban Studies at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and an expert on costs and benefits of local living and mi-numum wage policies and employment in port cities.

Reclaiming Prosperity is a Town Hall produced speaker series focused on transforming our economy and building a prosperous future for working people and their families.

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.
