BWW Video Show Preview: The Times They Are A-Changin'

While the cast, crew and guests celebrate the opening night of "The Times They Are A-Changin" - BroadwayWorld.com is pleased to bring you these highlights from the show!

The Times They Are A-Changin,' the new musical collaboration between Twyla Tharp and Bob Dylan, will open on October 26th at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. 

The Times They Are A-Changin' was previously a hit in its world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre. The Broadway run stars Michael Arden (Bare, Big River), Thom Sesma (Man of La Mancha revival, La Cage aux Folles), and Lisa Brescia (The Woman in White, Aida). In addition, Tony Award-nominee John Selya (Movin' Out) performs in the show's ensemble. Lisa Gadga, Charlie Hodges, Luke Longacre, Jason McDole, Jonathan Nosan and Ron Todorowski are among the show's other performers.

As with Movin' Out, in which she directed and choreographed a narrative dance piece set to the songs of Billy Joel, Tharp has envisioned a theatrical world based on the songs of legendary folk-rock singer/songwriter Dylan.  The Times They Are A-Changin' is "set within a low-rent traveling circus run by Capt. Arab, whose wagon hasn't moved from its location in some time, though not by lack of effort from his ragtag band of clowns and performers. One such performer is the animal trainer Cleo, a young woman exploited by Capt. Arab and loved by his son, Coyote. Coyote longs for a world outside the confines of the family business, and as the circus show plays out, he must decide whether to flee or stay, and if he does stay, how to inspire change within the troupe," according to press notes. Sesma plays Capt. Arab, while Brescia and Arden are featured as Cleo and Coyote, respectively.
