Cracking Wise

Missing the ’90s? You’re not alone. Luckily locals can get a fix of some true boy-band goodness when Joey Fatone & AJ McClean join up for a night of nostalgic song at Port Chester Capitol Theatre. One quarter of the multiplatinum boy group *NSYNC, Joey Fatone will be performing alongside one member of the genre-defining band The Backstreet Boys, AJ McLean, for hits that just may remind you of your heyday.

Immerse yourself in the smoky sounds of one of the county’s most rollicking jazz festivals this month on the scenic grounds of Katonah’s Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. Presented in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center, Caramoor’s Jazz Festival will be headlined this year by the three-time ASCAP Foundation Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award winner Matthew Whitaker, with additional performances by Charles Overton, Francesca Tandoi, and Ekep Nkwelle, all taking place amid the center’s lush gardens and rolling hills.

It’s a Gas

A celebrated SNL alum and co-star of such sidesplitting films as Mean Girls and What Woman Want, Ana Gasteyer is one entertainer well worth a watch. She’ll be taking the White Plains Performing Arts Center stage this month as part of Seth’s Broadway Concert Series. Known for her lauded stint on the mega-hit musical Wicked, Gasteyer has the pipes to match her comedic pedigree and will likely prove it during this night of humorous stories and songs from The Great White Way.
