Writer-performer Jane Lynch and songwriters Faith and Jill Soloway explode the common myth about humorless feminists in their stylish sendup "Oh Sister, My Sister!" at the Tamarind. Directed by Jill Soloway, this refreshingly screwball show explores--and comedically exploits--the confusions, foibles and hostilities of women ranging from a recently widowed Chicago senior to a radical lesbian folk singer.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was planning to take off for Utah on Friday for a weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. Garcetti described his visit to the Park City ski resort as part personal, part business. Taxpayers won't be billed, he said, because he's spending a day with friends. “It's on my own dime,” Garcetti said in an interview at Cal State Northridge after an event marking the 20th anniversary of the earthquake. Garcetti said he was also planning to attend a reception for Los Angeles filmmakers at a private home.

Spend enough time putting words in other people's mouths or playing roles and the urge strikes to build a world, or at least an essay, around the word "me." Tapping the collective Hollywood impulse is freshyarn.com, which twice a month posts essays from a list of contributors that's included actresses Kathy Najimy and Marcia Wallace and writers such as Jill Soloway of "Six Feet Under," Earl Hamner, creator of "The Waltons," and "Freaks and Geeks" creator Paul Feig.

In 1992, Assembly of God minister Keenan Roberts reclaimed Jerry Falwell's concept of replacing secular Halloween motifs with graphic realizations of sinful behavior. Roberts' outreach has spawned about 3,000 houses nationwide, inspiring "Hell House," George Ratliff's 2001 documentary. That film spurred co-directors Maggie Rowe and Jill Soloway to create the conversion subversion of "Hollywood Hell House."

The darkish comedy "Afternoon Delight" gives the talented Kathryn Hahn her first movie lead, and for a while it looks like an opportunity to dig in deep. Hahn's vanity-free performance as a bored Los Angeles housewife who befriends a stripper goes a considerable way to humanize a film of occasional insight and underdeveloped provocations. Ultimately, though, her character is as thinly conceived and hard to root for as everyone else in filmmaker Jill Soloway's erratic blend of not-quite satire and halfhearted soul searching.

Often witty, sometimes righteous, and occasionally furious, the blog Jezebel has been a high-profile platform for a new generation of feminists since 2007. Part of the Gawker media blog empire, Jezebel put feminist critiques of our still-very-critique-able culture smack into the center of the mainstream. Now it has moved into print, with "The Book of Jezebel. " The book's editor and website's founding editor Anna Holmes, who did her time working at glossy, non-feminist magazines before beginning Jezebel, will be at Barnes & Noble at the Grove on Wednesday night with current editor Jessica Coen and contributors Jill Soloway, Ann Friedman and Amanda Hess to talk about the book.

The ripped-from-the-headlines TV-movie genre is fairly easy to parody. It's even easier to just lampoon the casts of such movies. Benjamin Zook and Faith Soloway focus primarily on the actors who frequent these films in their mean little spoof, "Not Without My Nipples! The Made-for-TV Musical," at the Coast Playhouse. It's sophomoric and scattershot. "Nipples" follows in the wake of "The Miss Vagina Pageant," a production from Soloway and her sister Jill that was at the same theater a year ago.

The Scene: Opening night of the L.A. run of "The Real Live Brady Bunch" at the Westwood Playhouse. The show is a live, hilarious re-creation of the television show done directly from the original scripts. Tuesday's episode, "The Subject Was Noses," had the audience roaring with every Brady-esque nuance. Some of the audience and the cast celebrated later at a dessert buffet party at the Westwood Marquis.
