Sing for Hope: YOU can be the performer at this special day-long event on September 29 at 28 Liberty Plaza, which will temporarily house 10 artist-designed pianos for everyone who wants to tickle their ivories.

Deep Blue Sea: Superstar choreographer Bill T. Jones’ newest work, being presented at the Park Avenue Armory from September 28-October 9, incorporates deconstructed texts from Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick,” and culminates with Jones and his dance company being joined onstage by approximately 90 community members. www.armoryonpark.org

Beyond Babel: A big hit during its brief initial run, this narrative urban dance riff on Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” returns to the Gym at Judson for an extended stay on September 30. But hurry if you want to see co-creators and internationally renowned dancers Keone & Mari Madrid, as they will only perform during the first 16 performances. www.beyondbabelshow.com

Natalie Douglas: The undisputed queen of midtown supper club Birdland, this extraordinary vocalist (with a shelf full of awards to prove it) will make her sure-to-be triumphant return with two completely different shows. On October 1, she pays tribute to Nina Simone, Dolly Parton and Roberta Flack; on October 2, Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole and Elvis Presley get the tribute treatment. www.birdlandjazz.com

Sol of El Barrio: Three-time Tony Award Robin DeJesus is just one of the many participants in “Sol of El Barrio: The AfroLatinidad Connection” a unique celebration of AfroLatinidad history in New York City. This special event, created, hosted and directed by Maria Torres, will take place on Sunday, October 3 at 5pm at Manhattan’s Theater 555. www.amasmusical.org
