If you’re jealous of your New York friends for getting all the good new musical theater, you’ll feel at home at A Little New Music. The quarterly series is a cabaret show of new musical theater songs by everyone from up-and-comers to the Broadway songwriting team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and the performers have included Broadway vets Kevin Chamberlin and Daisy Eagan. The lineup is eclectic — one song may be more of an experiment, while another may have been part of a recent show at Center Theatre Group. It’s been presented at Rockwell Table & Stage, a low-lit restaurant that hosts cabaret-style entertainment seven nights a week (Jeff Goldblum sings every Wednesday). The space is comfortable and classy, though you’ll want to plan ahead and make a reservation to ensure you can sit with your friends. You’ll get a full evening that’s often more entertaining than seeing an actual musical — plus you can buy drinks and dinner. Interested in being part of A Little New Music? Feel free to submit your song or headshot via the website, though the producers receive way more than they can accept. —Zachary Pincus-Roth
