The Hub Theatre presents the world-premiere production of gay humor writer Marc Acito's Birds of a Feather, an inspiring story about families and the bird-brained behaviors of humans -- and also, penguins. In fact, the play focuses on the gay penguins at New York's Central Park Zoo that were a media sensation last decade. Shirley Serotsky directs a cast including Matt Dewberry and Dan Crane. Opens Friday, July 15, at 8 p.m. To Aug. 7. John Swayze Theatre, the New School of Northern Virginia, 9431 Silver King Ct., Fairfax. Tickets are $25. Call 703-674-3177 or visit thehubtheatre.org.
