BWW Reviews: Derek & Julianne Hough MOVE at Wolf Trap!BWW Reviews: Derek & Julianne Hough MOVE at Wolf Trap!
by Ellen Burns - Jul 5, 2015

Dancers touring like rock stars might invoke some doubt, but the motto of Derek and Julianne Hough's Move Live on Tour is "Motion=Emotion," and it's a safe bet that the audience at Wolf Trap on Friday night was feeling it.

But with the advent of shows like Dancing With the Stars, where the Houghs gained their reputations, to So You Think You Can Dance, and America's Best Dance Crew, we're now getting to know the names and faces of a multitude of dancers in more dance styles than most of us knew existed, and these performers are finally getting their due.

BWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf TrapBWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf Trap
by Emma Kouguell - Jun 24, 2015

Her ability to capture these narratives through her voice is one of the many reasons Ms. McDonald is such a brilliant actress and singer. The opportunity to see Ms. McDonald work her magic live is enchanting, to say the least. (more...)
