Nov. 13-Jan. 6: Dreamgirls
From Broadway to the Beltway, the hit musical Dreamgirls opens tonight at Signature Theatre in Arlington. Directed and choreographed by Matthew Gardiner, the Tony Award-winning show brings the spirit of Motown to the stage as it tells the story of three women trying to make their way to the top, without losing themselves in the process. You can tap your toes to this dance and R&B-infused production through January 6.

The Washington Performing Arts Society and Sixth & I Historic Synagogue co-present Yemen Blues tonight at 8 p.m. The Israeli-American band offers a unique mix of traditional Yemenite melodies with blues, funk, and jazz. The group was founded in 2010 by Ravid Kahalani, a vocalist with the Idan Raichel Project.
