We're Grumpy, Too





In a two-night fund-raising show, Interplayers will present Good Morning, World, How Are You? By portraying Mark Twain and Will Rogers -- and by enacting an anti-war parable by James Thurber -- four actors will tell us all about how we're getting everything wrong in life. (But humorously.) Performances on Thursday-Friday, Oct. 5-6, at 8 pm. Tickets: $15. Call 455-PLAY.





Misanthropy, Lycanthropy





When it comes to the story of the Big Bad Wolf and those three self-centered little pigs, how come we never see things from the wolf's point of view? Ballet Spokane is going to redress that imbalance. In a program called "Wolf Tales," Artistic Director Janet Wilder has created a series of fractured fairy tales for both kids and their parents -- which will be told, entirely through dance, on Sunday, Oct. 8, at 3 pm at Interplayers, 174 S. Howard St. Tickets: $5. Call 922-3023. Now pirouette, you little piggies.





Cho-Ho-Ho-Pin





If you've ever been to Ho Ho Teriyaki in the Flour Mill, you know about the great food -- and the pride that proprietors Ho Lan and Danny Chang have in their daughter Hsia-Jung. That's because the Changs' daughter is an accomplished interpreter of Chopin's piano works. On Monday night, as a benefit for the Barton School -- a volunteer program that' s in its 38th year of providing one-on-one instruction to immigrants learning English as a second language -- Hsia-Jung Chang will perform works by Ravel, Liszt and Schubert. (Her mother, Ho Lan, was a student at Barton in the '70s.) Recital on Monday, Oct. 9, at 7 pm at First Pres, 318 S. Cedar St. Tickets: $20; $15, seniors and students. Call 747-1058 ext. 251 or 326-6344.





Roof-Raising





Support the people who support the homeless by building them new homes. Habitat for Humanity (which has just completed three more Spokane-area homes) will hold a silent auction on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 6 pm at Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights. And then, after dinner at 7 pm, you can bid in a "Raise the Roof" live auction on trips (fly-fishing, basketball-related, Mexican and other) and on art, building materials and services, and more. Tickets: $60. Call 534-2552.





Badda-Boo, Badda-Bing





"The Met Theater." Probably one in every town. And ours commemorates a company that defrauded hundreds of investors. Or we could rechristen the place after a crooner whom everyone identifies with Christmas and good times. Seems like a no-brainer (especially since the idea was brought up in the pages of The Inlander by contributor William Stimson): The Bing Crosby Theater.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
