(August 29-September 27) ZERO HOUR Theater J kicks off its season near D.C.'s Dupont Circle with Zero Hour, opening tomorrow and running through September 27th. The play is a character study of the ebullient, mercurial and comical star Samuel Joel "Zero" Mostel, perhaps most famous for his role as Tevye in the original Broadway version of Fiddler on the Roof. Actor Jim Brochu holds down the one-man show with ease and versatility as he takes on Mostel's persona as artist, activist and blacklisted actor.

(August 29) ROPE IN YOUR HANDS The [Chesapeake Arts Center] in Brooklyn Park, Maryland (http://www.chesapeakearts.org/events.html) presents The Rope in Your Hands, a one-woman show commemorating the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, with just one performance tomorrow night at 8. This original show is based on interviews with survivors in New Orleans, conducted after Katrina hit the Crescent City. All proceeds from this Pay-What-You-Can performance will be donated to Habitat for Humanity's Musician's Village in New Orleans.

(August 29) RISE AND SHINE Key Wilde and Mr. Clarke perform songs from their new CD Rise and Shine - part of the "Tot Rock" series at Jammin' Java in Vienna, Virginia, tomorrow morning at 11. This all-ages concert features grooves with story-like lyrics, where pigs grow as big as tractor trailers, little dogs imagine themselves as bullfrogs and there are red balloon rides to the moon, offering a fresh musical treat for even the most jaded ears.
