L.A. singer and pop music preservationist Janet Klein will celebrate her 100th performance of a nine-year-and-running residency in Hollywood with a show April 4 that highlights vintage popular songs from the 1920s and 1930s. Klein and her band, the Parlor Boys, have been setting up at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood since 2004, serving up the music of the classic era of Tin Pan Alley songwriters such as George M. Cohan, George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter and many other less well-known musicians in period-appropriate arrangements.

ALOVE scene between logophiles: "I want to put my words in your mouth," the woman says. "I want to put my words all over your face." The man is silent. Woman: "Could you just say something?" Pause. "Anything." Man: "I voted absentee last year?" Woman: "I love that." Claire Titelman and Josh Fadem are rehearsing their upcoming show, "Claire and Josh Hate Themselves but Love Each Other," an absurdist sketch comedy about "wordvert" romance.

As a Kid in the Hall, Scott Thompson (pictured) has played everything from a surf cop to an effeminate socialite. But in his one-man show "Scottastrophe," Thompson simply plays himself. "I had a story I needed to tell," he explains. From getting on the wrong end of a firebombing to terrorizing Canadian literary society with a makeshift sex toy, Thompson surveys a rocky last few years wondering what all the drama's been about. 8 p.m. Ends Feb 29. Steve Allen Theater, Los Feliz. $10. www.

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."

SOMEWHERE far from the Gaza Strip, and nowhere near Fallouja, a Hasidic Jew, a Saudi Muslim and an American white supremacist lock arms and frolic blissfully in dance and song. The aforementioned scenario is not the start of a bad bar joke. It is a scene in Act I of Julien Nitzberg and Roger Neill's operetta "The Beastly Bombing: A Terrible Tale of Terrorists Tamed by the Tangles of True Love," at the Steve Allen Theater at the Center for Inquiry-West in Hollywood.

On my way to the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood Thursday night for a rare local appearance by Lukas Ligeti, I stopped by Amoeba Music to pick up his new solo CD, "Afrikan Machinery." It was temporarily out of stock. A good sign, I thought. This is remarkable music, and its popularity must mean a brilliant young composer is catching on. Ligeti is a delirious percussionist as well. He plays something called a Marimba Lumina.

Magician Rob Zabrecky has a bar of skeleton-shaped soap in his bathroom in the Valley, even though Halloween isn't on the horizon yet. The skeleton, like so much about Zabrecky, is a manifestation of his obsession with the macabre. It's an obsession he has cultivated for the last 12 years, eventually embodying it in the persona of his alter ego — a darkly comic character called Odd Man. At Hollywood's Magic Castle, where Zabrecky is a member, he performs as Odd Man, but his shows are short and completely devoted to his theatrical brand of magic.

Lizz Winstead is on a roll. "I heard Pat Buchanan saying that one of the reasons John McCain lost the election was that Sarah Palin was too pretty. Uh, clearly it was her jarring beauty that cost the Republicans the White House. No doubt people said, 'Well, I'd like to vote for her, but she's too pretty! I'm going to vote for that hideous Barack Obama.' " Winstead is parked on a couch at the Steve Allen Theater, where her satire on morning shows, "Wake Up World," will play tonight and Wednesday.
