It's the beginning of our 40th Anniversary season and we're going to celebrate, starting with an informal, retrospective studio performance & party at New 42nd Street Studios in Times Square. Join us on July 24th at 7 pm as we take a look back, and toast our company's future.
On the program will be excerpts from our past repertoire (including THE SIRENS' SONG featuring Darius Crenshaw, the "Injuries" section of 2006's I AM A DANCER, reprised by the role's creator, Kristin Licata; "Francesca's Monologue" from 1995's RUNNING BACKWARDS ON THE TREADMILL performed by Debra Zalkind and Mr. Crenshaw; "Reflections" from 2000's NEW YORK, NY, "Tango" from S.L.E.D. (1988) both performed by Dona Wiley, and MORE! Kanae Kusu, Savannah Lee, Danielle Shupe, and Asha Sienkiewicz will also perform.
