Apology/Faustus and The Hunchback Variations

Fridays, 7 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Sept. 29

What would you do if you knew with absolute certainty that you would not live through the night? Would you spend your last hours with loved ones, or maybe try to cram as much living as possible into the time you had left? In the case of Dr. Faustus, he's spending the time offering an apology to a crowd. The good doctor has been a bad man, looking the other way while evil flourished in the world. Evil here is personified by Mephistopheles, a servant of hell who waits until Faustus' time expires and the demon can take his soul. The Mickle Maher one-act play "An Apology for the Course and Outcome of Certain Events Delivered by Doctor John Faustus on This His Final Evening" is performed by Midnight Company at 7 p.m. Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (September 20 to 29) at the Monocle (4150 Manchester Avenue; www.midnightcompany.com) as part of Faustival. Following "Apology/Faustus" is another Maher one-act, "The Hunchback Variations," which sees Beethoven and the Hunchback of Notre Dame discuss their individual attempts to create "a mysterious sound," efforts hampered by the deafness of both men. Tickets for the double bill are $15. $15

Apology/Faustus and The Hunchback Variations

Mark Dew:

Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m.

To walk into the Hideaway is to enter a place that seems frozen in time, where the dozen or so seats around the piano are packed with your grandparents' friends, decked out in chunky jewelry and tilted fedora hats. Ostensibly, they're here to listen to Mark Dew play — he's here Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights — but you're just as likely to hear one of those old-timers sitting around the piano trill Charlie Rich's "The Most Beautiful Girl." And when Dew finally has his turn at the mic, he'll say something humble, like, "I apologize; it should have been in the key of F." No matter. Dew is the conductor of this time-traveling train, and everyone's on board. Dew, who is blind, has been the piano man here for nearly a quarter-century and jokes that the best part about working here is, well, getting paid. He marvels at the younger set trickling in and its knowledge of the Cash and Sinatra songbooks: "The more the crowd gets into it, the more I play," Dew says. And that's enough to keep him around. "I'm not quite ready to be out to pasture," he says. "Yet." free

Two "absorbing, amusing" "witty, bizarre" "just plain weird" short plays by Mickle Maher. Two acclaimed Midnight Co. revivals. APOLOGY/FAUSTUS gives us Faustus on his final night apologizing for not standing up to evil, in the person of Mephistopheles. (Part of FAUSTival). THE HUNCHBACK VARIATIONS is a panel discussion with Beethoven and The Hunchback of Notre Dame trying to create Chekhov's illusive stage direction from The Cherry Orchard. A brilliant meditation on creative collaboration. $15

In an era when a woman's time and attention were to be occupied by her husband and household, Charlotte and Emma aspire to be elegant, economical, and enlightened wives... Useful and Necessary Ingredients is a fast-paced experimental play which steps into the minds of two women of the 1930s, as they sprint between memory, desire, and immediate experience. Using scientific and social knowledge inherited through generations of women, watch as the pursuit of perfection teaches them to flip the status quo. $15
