COMEDY—Helium welcomes verrrry funny all-gentlemen improv squad Whiskey Tango to their stage.

THEATER—Take a knee: One of Portland's smartest theater companies has something to say. Hand2Mouth's new show Pep Talk is a high-energy riff on coaches, teams, and of course, pre-game motivational speeches. It even includes a nod to Friday Night Lights' Coach Taylor, the most inspiring coach of them all. AH
