CLASSICAL: Tonight at 8 pm, members of the LA Philharmonic tackle the following compositions: Martinů’s “Piano Trio No. 2 in D minor,” Poulenc’s “Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano” and Chausson’s “Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 3.”

FILM:: The ArcLight Sherman Oaks continues its tribute to Paul Newman tonight with Cool Hand Luke. See where classic lines like “What we got here is…failure to communicate” come from.

THEATRE: LAist recommends Spring Awakening and it continues its run tonight at 8 pm at the Ahmanson. You have until Dec. 7 to catch coming of age story with mature themes, partial nudity and strong language. Great songs and performances to boot.
