Ballet on Broadway in Morristown to offer Audio Description
By njballet on Wednesday, April 30 2014
There was a time when the smart set would take in a show on Broadway and then head uptown to dance the night away to the music of the great swing bands. On Saturday, May 17, New Jersey Ballet brings back the heady rhythms of those bygone days at MPAC in Morristown. And this performance will be Audio Described for visually impaired patrons.
The program, Ballet on Broadway, will include two recent repertory additions Hand in Hand, a Celebration of Count Basie, and Stride in Style which skips through the evolution of stride piano style. These two pieces are part of New Jersey Ballet’s project celebrating the state’s 350th anniversary. Other highlights of the evening include the Challenge Dance from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Too Darn Hot from Kiss Me Kate, both staged by Patti Colombo, and March, a New York-y piece with a decided Fosse flavor by James Kinney.
NJB's Special guests, The Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir, will bring their spirited young voices and snappy choreography to a medley of musical theatre show-stoppers.
