Black and Blue Broadway

In ' black and blue ' takes Introdans Ensemble for Youth the audience in the imaginative world of Alwin Nikolaïs. The famous American artist made not only works, but also designed light, sound, decor and costumes.



Thanks to Intro dance, that the exclusive right acquired to work some of his magic to dance in Netherlands, we are introduced to his masterpiece ' Crucible '. Also ' Tensile Involvement ' takes a special place amongst the many other works of Nikolaïs success. In this almost sixty years old choreography excel the dancers in a tangle of elastics. The funny ' Blue Journey ' by David Maddy and the beautiful ' Short Circuit ' of Jérôme Meyer interwoven dance on exciting way with movie images.



' This performance should be seen by anyone who is open to pure theater magic. Regardless of the age ' (de Gelderlander)

Ain't Misbehavin' is 'Spreading Rhythm Around' Jacksonville. The Tony Award-Winning Musical honoring Fats Wallers' and the heyday of the Harlem jazz scene is currently showing at Alhambra. This musical stands out from many other because it does not have a plot to follow but is a combination of much of Wallers' music in one show. I personally did not know much of the music and the time period it was produced, and I believe it would have affected my experience greatly. If this is a time period and genre you are interested in, you will greatly enjoy the show!

It's hard to believe that it's been over 40 years now since a little revue that started at New York's Manhattan Theatre Club took Broadway by storm. The show was Ain't Misbehavin' and if you didn't know who composer Thomas “Fats” Waller was before, you did after seeing this show. It also made Nell Carter a star and garnered her a television series called Gimme a Break. Besides Carter the cast was comprised of Charlaine Woodard, Armelia McQueen, Andre De Shields, and Ken Page. When the original cast returned for a Broadway revival of the show in the 80's, Nell Carter received star billing even though the show is truly an ensemble piece. Ah, the power of television.
