Love Person is a new play about translating ideas and emotions. As the three characters flirt and fight in sign language, Sanskrit, and English, we quickly realize the real problems with loving across borders of language: The ambiguity of translation leaves plenty of wiggle room to lie, cheat, and generally act like an asshole. As the weather becomes more malevolent, it's a pleasure to duck into a theater and watch a play that's both unabashedly romantic and undeniably intelligent. (Live Girls! Theater, 2220 NW Market St, 800-838-3006. 4 and 8 pm, $5–$15.)
