'Midnight' in concert

The nonfiction book "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" spent two years on the New York Times Book Review's best-seller list. And now it's spending this fall touring as a jazz concert.

Tomorrow night at the Kennedy Center in Washington, the book which captures the personalities of Savannah, Ga., through the lens of a true-crime tale, will be transformed into a concert by its real-life characters and author John Berendt to the music of Johnny Mercer.

The show is at the Kennedy Center, 2700 F St., off West Virginia and New Hampshire avenues. N.W. in Washington, tomorrow at 8: 30 p.m. Tickets are $22-$40. Call (202) 833-9800.
