Bailey Nolan's DUMBO to Play JACK, 8/27-29Bailey Nolan's DUMBO to Play JACK, 8/27-29
by BWW News Desk - Aug 12, 2015

Bailey Nolan (Ann Liv Young Dance Company) mounts a one-woman cabaret with a cast of ten, re-imagining 'Dumbo' as the tale of a gender-free outcast. Relayed through a series of vignettes told from the vantage point of Dumbo's mother (a retired showgirl played by Nolan herself), the extravaganza features fearless performers from her collective BabySkinGlove, including Charley Parden, Viva Soudan, Nessa Norich, Ellen Robin Rosenberg and Wesley Flash.
