Performing Arts Series

The J Performing Arts Series, open to all members of the metro community, includes public performances of professional music, dance and theatre productions, play readings, Broadway cabaret events, and children’s theatre productions.

The Performing Arts Series presents cultural programming designed to engage people of all generations, and to provide texture and insight into the rich cultural history and contemporary trends of the Jewish people. The Series strives to make the J a destination for both J members and the general public to celebrate and appreciate Judaism’s culture, people, spirituality, wisdom, humor and creativity.

The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and the J Cultural Arts collaborate to create a new Chamber Music Series featuring renowned artists in an intimate concert setting. Check this page for updates on performances from the series.


Upcoming events:

A NEW play in partnership with The Hub Theatre

The Secrets of the Universe (and other songs)
Sunday, October 15, 4pm

In 1937, a physics professor at Princeton University received a call. The internationally
renowned classical singer Marian Anderson was giving a concert at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton. Because she was African-American, Anderson was denied
a hotel room. Instead, she accepted an invitation to stay at the professor's home.
That professor was Albert Einstein. The Secrets of the Universe is a play by Marc
Acito with songs, based on the true relationship of these titanic figures, a union of hearts, minds, and souls in a quest to unlock the secrets of the cosmos.
