And you thought today's government was a mess. This raucous satire is set in 1950s Washington, D.C., where two State Department employees -- both gay and both locked firmly in the closet -- have been tasked with ferreting out homosexuals in their department. To avoid detection themselves, they've come up with what seems like the "Perfect Arrangement": They've each married the other's partner. But their sitcom-like situation threatens to come crashing down around them when an employee discovers their deception. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement during the Lavender Scare of the McCarthy Era, this madcap comedic romp gives way to provocative drama as the characters are forced to deal with inconvenient truths. Catch this witty show, written by Topher Payne, at 12 Ave Arts courtesy of ReAct Theatre in Seattle. [less-]

Housed in a 1909 brick building on the Seattle waterfront, Highway 99 Blues Club and Restaurant is inspired by the juke joints of the American South and the neighborhood blues clubs of Chicago. Dubbing themselves "the West Coast Home of the Blues," the venue fully embraces the culture and music. On stage, you'll see regional and national touring artists cranking out everything from zydeco to honky-tonk to roots and Americana. Meanwhile, the venue itself is studded with "old timey" touches like a 34-foot bar made from antique doors and blue velvet benches collected from an old Masonic Temple. The walls are covered with photos snapped by some of the country's best blues photographers. And to round out the juke joint experience, the kitchen pumps out Southern-style comfort food -- think jambalaya and chicken gumbo -- while the bar whips up cocktails named for blues legends like Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.
