by Matt Tamanini - July 10, 2014

This week's SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE had a very Broadway feel to it with Josh Bergasse, the choreographer of the upcoming ON THE TOWN revival, staging a Top-20 routine to the show's anthem 'New York, New York' (the one by Bernstein, Comden, and Green, not Kander and Ebb). As we learned last week, this season's winner will earn a spot in the musical's ensemble. While some people, including @Actor_Friend, don't like this idea, remember, the last network show to give away roles on Broadway brought us Laura Osnes, so let's reserve judgment, just in case a reality show brings us more Broadway royalty this time.

6) Hottest Articles on BWWDanceWorld.com from 7/6/2014 - 7/13/2014 Montreal's Infinitheatre to Present KAFKA'S APE at Gladstone Hotel, 8/7-17
by BWW News Desk - July 10, 2014

Montreal's Infinitheatre presents the Toronto premiere of its critically acclaimed Kafka's Ape as part of the Mainstage Series at the SummerWorks Performance Festival. Based on Franz Kafka's short story A Report to an Academy (1917), and adapted by director Guy Sprungfrom the original German, Kafka's Ape upends the notion of civilization and what it means to be human in a world of routinized inhumanity. An unnerving satire on 'otherness' and the compounding growth of private military companies, Kafka's Ape stars Howard Rosenstein as keynote speaker - and primate - Mr. Redpeter in a theatrical tour-de-force performance. Alexandra Montagnese enthrallingly plays the silent role of Mrs. Redpeter. Kafka's Ape runs August 7-17 at the Gladstone Hotel, a site-specific venue of SummerWorks. (more...)
