TONIGHT, March 1 Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975 – CD Forum is excited to present Pat Thomas and his highly anticipated book Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.

In 2004, Pat began working on a research project centered around the Black Panther Party with a focus on the protest recordings that the Black Power movement inspired during the 1960s and 1970s  this led to establishing strong working relationships with two key leaders of the Black Panther Party David Hilliard (Chief of Staff) and Party chairman Elaine Brown (including releasing her landmark 1969 album “Seize The Time” on CD). As well as meetings with Bobby Seale, Ericka Huggins, and other Panthers. Over a period of 5 years, Pat uncovered dozens of rare/out of print/forgotten Black Power recordings in all areas of jazz, soul, poetry, speeches, interviews, and rock/pop music  eventually amassing what might be considered the largest collection of its kind.

Tonight! An Improvised Christmas Carol –  Seattle’s funniest Christmas show returns! First performed in 1985, A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol brings Charles Dickens’s Christmas classic to the stage with a twist. What if Scrooge owned a pet store? What if the Ghost of Christmas Past was a Film Noir detective? What if Tiny Tim wasn’t so tiny? The audience gives suggestions up front, and Unexpected Productions’ improvisers use these suggestions to tell an all new tale of how Christmas can (or can’t!) change Ebenezer Scrooge’s life! This is a great show for families, shoppers, tourists, and audience members of all ages.

Tonight!Gigs4Good for Team Up: Drew Grow & TPW’s, Lower Lights Burning, Chris Cunningham –  Come and celebrate the end of another great year with Team Up for Nonprofits.

Friday, November 25 Dina Martina Christmas Show 2011 – Sleigh bells ring; are you listening?  They’re heralding the arrival of the 61st annual Dina Martina Christmas Show!  Unwittingly hilarious and wonderfully bizarre, Dina Martina is the chanteuse with the leastest; the dancer with the hunchfront; the childlike lady who, year after year, is the holiday gift that truly keeps on giving. A perennial favorite of the likes of John Waters, Margaret Cho, Matt Stone and Graham Norton, Miss Martina’s shows have long been a favorite holiday tradition for those who want something other than the usual holiday fare.

Friday, November 25 Proof by David Auburn – Blank Stage Theater presents their inaugural production of Proof by David Auburn. The winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Proof follows a woman struggling through her grief from the death of her father, a mathematical genius who was profoundly mentally ill.

Friday, November 25 | Language Rooms: Ahmed is a shining example of the American Dream, working as a translator in a Homeland Security detainment facility. Soon after his big promotion, his loyalty is called into question as the job and the office politics take a turn for the absurd. A dark comedy that explores themes of identity and misguided patriotism, Language Rooms is another gem from Yussef el Guindi (Back of the Throat, Jihad Jones and the Kalashnikov Babes), one of the most important dramatic voices in the U.S. today, and this year’s Middle East America winner.

Friday, November 25 | Nina and the Monsters: A loving homage to the golden age of monster movies of the silver screen in this hilarious ensemble comedy. San Francisco actor-playwright Rey Carolino returns again to present his hilarious tongue in cheek horror-comedy. Life goes awry at an obscure European village where village girl Nina is slowly turning into a werewolf. Things get crazier as an outrageous Hollywood producer and his movie star protege, two rogue CIA agents, and monster hunters from New Jersey all plot to capture and exploit her. And then the Real monsters arrive in time to complicate things!
