Actor Kevin Spacey comes to Washington — to sing

After losing the Emmy for lead actor in a drama series, Kevin Spacey will get the chance to sing the awards show blues at the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Sidney Harman Hall in Washington on Sept. 29.

The proceeds from “Kevin Spacey in Concert” — a one-night-only affair — will benefit the Kevin Spacey Foundation, which “aims to train, support and mentor emerging artists in the performing arts and film” with grants, scholarships and “bespoke learning projects.”

While we assume that most of the night’s ticket holders will be there to see Spacey, who plans to perform classics from the Great American Songbook, there’s really no telling who might walk onto that stage. The man has many faces — and voices.

Spacey has played “Splish Splash” singer Bobby Darin, saxophonist (and former president) Bill Clinton, and, of course, Netflix’s newest president, Frank Underwood.

And just in case you’re thinking, “one of these things is not like the other,” take a listen to Underwood carrying a decent tune during the second season of  “House of Cards.”
