Sept. 20: Einstein’s Girl
As part of the Autumn Cabaret Festival, actor and vocalist Gia Mora will perform her one-woman show, Einstein’s Girl, at Signature Theatre in Arlington tonight at 8. In the performance, Mora brings a 21st century twist to the art of cabaret, as she talks about love and theoretical physics in songs such as “Blinded Me with Science”, “E=mc2”, and “Stardust.” Composer Charlie Barnett will provide musical accompaniment on the piano.

Sept. 21: Classic Connections
Tomorrow night the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas hosts pianist, conductor and two-time Grammy Award winner Peter Nero in Classic Connections. Joined by jazz bassist Michael Barnett, Nero will present the program, which blends popular favorites with classical works. For example, you can hear Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns” mixed with Chopin, or Cole Porter tunes infused with Beethoven. Ticket holders can attend a free, pre-performance discussion 45 minutes before the show.

Music: “That’s All” by Jump City Jazz Orchestra
