Long before he was spicing up such Hollywood fare as Ocean's 39 or whatever installment they're up to, British actor Eddie Izzard made an international name for himself as the world's preeminent history-obsessed heterosexual transvestite comedic solo performer. This weekend at Seattle Rep, Izzard returns to his roots, with two performances of his new solo show, Work in Progress. (Seattle Repertory Theatre, 155 Mercer St, 443-2222. 8 pm, $50.)
