Book-It Repertory Theatre has long had an active education program, and it just got a major infusion of support. In honor of their late mother, Faye Allen, Paul G. Allen and Jody Allen are giving Book-It a three-year grant totaling $340,000 for its educational performances and programs. The gift (the largest in Book-It's history) will allow the company to expand its educational work beyond the Puget Sound area.

In addition, Book-It is initiating the late-night performance series Circumbendibus (meaning a roundabout route or process), with new works created in the Book-It style of literary adaptation — pieces aimed at targeted audiences in alternative spaces. The series opens with "Jesus' Son," drawn from a short-story collection by Denis Johnson, at Seattle's Rendezvous nightclub next Tuesday and Wednesday. And on Nov. 11 and 12, a show based on writing about food and dining will be performed at the Dahlia Lounge restaurant.

More information and tickets: 206-216-0833 or www.book-it.org.
