THEATER: Don’t miss opening night of A Second Chance at Signature Theatre. Written by Ted Shen, the musical follows the unlikely romance of two New Yorkers—played by real-life couple Brian and Diane Sutherland. Tickets ($40) can be purchased through the theater’s Web site. Tonight’s show is at 7:30. The play runs through December 11.

Classic pop singer Julian Velard is performing at the Iota Club tonight. The artist “updates the big Seventies melodies and showtunes of Billy Joel and Elton John with a dash of contemporary cool,” says the Telegraph. You can listen to some of his songs here. He will be joined by alt-rocker Sharon Little. Tickets ($12) can be purchased at the door. 8:30 PM.

If you’re in the mood for something with a bit more edge, Kinks frontman Ray Davies is dropping by the Fillmore. The British rocker’s tone is “consistently one of ruefulness and disappointment, nostalgia tinged with sentimentality,” says the New York Times. Tickets ($40 to $50) can be purchased through Live Nation. 7 PM.

Little ones can explore the creative power of paint and music during Imagination Stage’s new show, What Does Red Do on Thursdays? Drawing inspiration from audience members, artist Joachim Torbahn creates a colorful world on a giant see-through canvas. Recommended for ages three and up. Tickets ($10) can be purchased through the theater’s Web site. The show runs through November 20. 10:30 AM.
