by BWW News Desk - Oct 7, 2010

Ginger Rogers danced her way into our hearts in the arms of Fred Astaire, setting the gold standard for grace and elegance on the silver screen. In her surprising true-life story, we follow her from the vaudeville stage at the age of 15 through her ascension to Hollywood goddess. BACKWARDS IN HIGH HEELS tells the story of this legendary dancer, singer and actress through the music of some of the 20th century's greatest composers and with plenty of dance numbers worthy of the Hollywood icon. BACKWARDS IN HIGH HEELS plays in Tucson at the Temple of Music and Art from September 10 through October 2. It continues its run in Phoenix at the Herberger Theater Center from October 7 through October 24. The Tucson media sponsors for the 2010-2011 season are Tucson Lifestyle, KGUN9 and MIX-FM.

Arizona Theatre Company Presents ROMEO AND JULIET, 11/4-14Arizona Theatre Company Presents ROMEO AND JULIET, 11/4-14
by BWW News Desk - Oct 4, 2010

ATC proudly presents a limited engagement of ROMEO AND JULIET, the 'greatest love story ever told,' performed by two of America's premier classical theatre companies for a limited run, November 4-7 at the Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix and November 11-14 at the Temple of Music and Art in Tucson. The New York Times says, 'ROMEO AND JULIET is a play of enormous, reckless passions - clans feud, friends quarrel, and lovers swoon. Here, those passions are met head-on, and with real skill.' The Minneapolis Examiner claims, 'This ROMEO AND JULIET transcends its classic status by portraying its fated lovers as two swept up in a romance that leads from the heart and not from the head. Whatever your age, it's safe to say this production will make you feel equally smitten.' This is a strictly limited engagement of this acclaimed national tour of William Shakespeare's richly poetic tragedy of young love. (more...)
