I'm also looking forward to this, especially after hearing the two songs from the 54 Below concert.

I really like the artwork as well.

Looking forward to good Ahrens & Flaherty score, especially after the dismal ROCKY.

I know that Lynn Ahrens has been wanting to do this show for a really long time, and I'm glad that they are finally doing it.

Daddy Warbucks, that 54 Below concert mentioned by tazber was (I believe) the one recorded for Ahrens and Flaherty's new 'Nice Fighting You' CD. I believe the album songs 'Ballerina' and 'Dancing Still' are from Little Dancer.

Tazber, that's nice to hear. Are you coming up to see this in DC?

The only person I know who has been cast is NYCB principal, Tyler Peck.
Hey Dottie! Did your colleagues enjoy the cake even though your cat decided to sit on it? ~GuyfromGermany

Thanks for the info.

Of course, when I clicked on the first link..it notes Rebecca, Tiler and Boyd Gaines. I am pretty sure I looked there before and didn't see any specific names. So either they updated the page that is linked.....or I am having a brain melt down/senior moment. Either way is entirely possible.

Little Dancer-a new musical

Just received this in the mail from the Kennedy Center:

Inside is a whole bunch of information about the work of art itself/a small summary of what the musical is going to be about with some GORGEOUS artwork. Not sure how to post multiple images, but if anybody wants I can take pictures of the inside of the pamphlet. Each page contains a sentence from lyrics from I'm guessing the show.

Here are some samples:
"If I'd never been a dancer,
if I'd never seen the artist,
if I'd only walked away…
But life turns upon a moment
like a dancer on her toe shoes…" from the song, "C'est le Ballet".

"Who's always prancing like
a pony doing fancy tricks?
Who's dancing in a line along with lunatics?
Who never gets a break?
Always has an ache? Who yearns for steak?
Who's always fitting like a gnat,
never getting fat? A rat!" from the song, "A Rat".

"The cocky nose,
the awkward stance.
But then, this transformation
when she starts to dance.
Such a distance in between
a thousand little dancers
and Marie" from the song, "In Between".

"Well, if you want it
then you can have it.
Uncork the bottle and out it pours.
Yes, if you're willing
Oh, what a thrilling world is yours!" from the song, "Little Opportunities"

'She is up to here with
hope and fear
and youthful do or die,
and no wonder why,
looking back at myself,
I see her concentration,
her fierce desire to shine!" from the song, "Looking Back at Myself".

The excellent Guggenheim Works and Process series talked with the authors and showed excerpts from Little Dancer last year. You can watch it here http://www.guggenheim.org/video/oct-5-the-kennedy-center-little-dancer-with-susan-stroman (They're doing one about Jerome Robbins and On the Town in early Nov!)
