“One of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker), Michelle Dorrance and her tap dream team arrive just in time for the holidays with a world premiere by Michelle Dorrance set to Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's sublime interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. And in the New York premiere of All Good Things Come to an End, the iconic music of Fats Waller frames a wild, satirical ride through tableaux ranging from “Cane and Able” to “The Myth of the American Dream.” A thrilling collection of unique voices, Dorrance is joined onstage with her collaborators Hannah Heller, Melinda Sullivan, and Josette Wiggan-Freund.
