A free performance by Japan’s jazz man, Arnie Baruch, will kick of Synthetic Unlimited theater’s final segment of production for Edward Albee’s classic, “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?” starting at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at The Stonehouse.
Baruch will entertain the Happy Hour crowd, warming up the house with his internationally acclaimed solo jazz act. The play follows afterward, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Baruch is a recent arrival from Tokyo with his wife and young son. He’s formerly of the Bay Area, where he played his horn in various bands, appearing once at the Monterey Jazz Festival with the Mary Watkins group.
He’s taught English in Japan since 1993; while there, he appeared solo six nights a week for several years at the Grand Cru club in fabled Roppongi.
The Stonehouse is located at 107 Sacramento St., in downtown Nevada City.
