The R&B/pop superstar – the original Lady Marmalade – returns for two shows after last year’s sold-out engagement. She'll offer pop tunes, jazz standards, blues anthems and spirituals – and hopefully, even the showstopper from Fela! she performed on Broadway a couple years ago. Also, expect a lot of casual banter. Miss Patti, she likes to relate to her audience. Friday, March 30, and Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda. Remaining tickets are $59 to $120. Call 301-581-5100 or visit strathmore.org.
