Phil FortenberryAssociate conductor of “Jersey Boys” Philip Fortenberry takes center stage in his one-man show, “The Man at the Piano.” He’ll play the songs that serve as touchstones for his amazing life as a piano player, which has taken him from a church pianist in Mississippi to Strip stalwart to the crime-fighting cosmonaut supermodel we know and love today. (Sorry. Phil’s life inspires that kind of hyperbole). Philip Fortenberry performs 2:30p June 23 at Cabaret Jazz in the Smith Center. Tickets: $25-$35. Info: thesmithcenter.com
