With Jewish classical music that ranges from the more traditional homage to the Rambam by Avi Eillam Amzallag to a "Surfer's Guide for the Perplexed" by professor David Lefkowitz, tonight's "Synergy" concert is well named. The combined energy of these varying parts is bound to make for some serious aural stimulation. The show also features "Spinoza," a musical exploration of the Jewish thinker, and "The Dybbuk Suite," based on the classic Anski play, and is brought to you by the folks at the Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity.

7:30 p.m. $15-$18. Emanuel Arts Theatre, 8844 Burton Way, Beverly Hills. R.S.V.P., (323) 658-5824.

With more gold and platinum than a rapper's got in his smile, lyricist Marty Panzer is yet another one of those guys you've heard, but never heard of. Tonight, hear songs like "Even Now" and "It's a Miracle" performed by Panzer and his friends in "An Evening With Marty Panzer."

7:30 p.m. $50. Coronet Theatre, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles. (323) 960-4410.

"Oooooooooooklahoma!" comes to SoCal today. A newly conceived national tour of the original Rodgers and Hammerstein musical comes to Los Angeles for two weeks only. It's cowmen vs. farmers – and Curly vs. Jud in the musical battle over the affection of a certain farm girl named Laury. In short, delicious cheese.

8 p.m. (Tues.-Fri.), 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. (Sat.), 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. (Sun.). $42.50-$67.50. Pantages Theatre, 6233 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles. www.oklahomaontour.com.

Judith Hoffman takes the antique store to the next level by moving beyond the cluttered retail showroom to a more inviting salon-type atmosphere. Thus, her gallery for Hungarian modernist antiques doubles as "Szalon," a gallery now exhibiting Russian avant-garde works from the 1910s and '20s from the collection of artist Katya Kompaneyets. There will be a discussion of the works in conjunction with today's opening, and light Russian faire will be served.

Through March 18. 7:30 p.m. 910 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles. (310) 657-0089.
