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 penguins. In fact, the play focuses on the gay penguins at New York's Central Park Zoo that were a media sensation last decade, contrasting them with the reaction to red-tailed hawks that made their home nearby. Shirley Serotsky directs a cast including the appropriately named Dan Crane. To Aug. 7. John Swayze Theatre, the New School of Northern Virginia, 9431 Silver King Ct. Fairfax. Tickets are $25.
