Freddie Falls in Love brings a fresh take on popular contemporary dance to The Joyce Theater this summer, marking choreographer Al Blackstone's Joyce debut. Known for his style that blends dance with theatrical storytelling, Blackstone has choreographed to Emmy-nominated effect on "So You Think You Can Dance," as well as extensively for musical theatre and the concert stage. Originally conceived and presented as a fundraiser for Dancers Responding to AIDS, the dance narrative follows a boy on his journey of self-discovery after experiencing heartbreak. Using energy, style, and not a single spoken word, Freddie Falls in Love tells the universal story of how a person can learn to embrace the unknown.
Two Broadway favorites will return to lead the cast for this premiere Joyce engagement of Freddie Falls in Love. Matt Doyle (The Book of Mormon, War Horse) reprises his turn as the lovelorn central character and "So You Think You Can Dance" winner Melanie Moore (Hello, Dolly!;Finding Neverland) returns as the woman who sets the action in motion by refusing the man's proposal. The dynamically versatile cast is rounded out by Marc Cardarelli, Katie Drablos, Chantelle Good, Lindsay Janisse, Evan Kasprzak, Tiare Keeno, Kolton Krouse, Heather Lang, Betty Weinberger and Jason Williams.
