Restoration Comedy, Brokeback Mountain, and MF Doom

Wed - Theater

Playwright Amy Freed charmed Seattle Rep audiences with her witty period comedy The Beard of Avon four years ago. Now she's back with Restoration Comedy, set in England at the colorful close of the 17th century. Wed., Dec. 7–Sat., Jan. 7. $10–$46. Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Center, 206-443-2222, www.seattlerep.org. LYNN JACOBSON

Thurs - Film

I predict a boom in cowboy hats and boots, and perhaps even chaps, after Brokeback Mountain opens Dec. 16. Ang Lee's "gay cowboy movie" is intensely romantic for viewers of any sexual orientation, and you can have a first look at this Dec. 8 SIFF benefit screening. Thurs., Dec. 8. $12.50–$20. Pacific Place, Sixth & Pine, 206-464-5830, www.seattlefilm.org. BRIAN MILLER

Mon–Tues - Music

MF Doom's deadpan flow has long been a cult favorite, but his jaunty collaboration with Danger Mouse, The Mouse and the Mask (Epitaph), credited to DangerDoom, is his most broadly appealing work yet. He's made about 736 other albums, so there'll be plenty to choose from at these two all-ages shows. 8 p.m. Mon., Dec. 12–Tues., Dec. 13. $18 adv. Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison St., 206-324-8000, www.chopsuey.com. MICHAELANGELO MATOS
