Theater LaB Houston presents I Think I'm Paranoid, a satirical look at AIDS, written and performed by the Queer Artist Collective. QuAC deals with the cultural implications of the epidemic by juxtaposing celluloid footage of pop culture paranoia with introspective personal narratives. Proceeds benefit The Center for AIDS, an information and advocacy group focused on keeping the medical community informed and involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS. 8 p.m. Theater LaB, 1706 Alamo, off the 2100 block of Houston Avenue, 868-7516. $15.
With its star-is-born story line chronicling the transformation of World War I-era vaudeville performer Fanny Brice from an awkward, unattractive, stage-struck teenager to a fabulous Ziegfeld Follies headliner, Funny Girl put Barbra Streisand on the motion picture map and burned Jule Styne's plaintive refrain "People ... People who need people ..." into the brains of every American born this century. Who knows what the Stages Repertory Theatre production will do for its star Holli Golden? November 27-January 3. Showtimes: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Stages Repertory Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway at Waugh Drive. Call 52-STAGE for tickets. $10-$30.
