Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who they appear to be. Based on the 1973 Academy Award-winning film, The Sting tells the tale of a pair of con men, small town grifter Johnny Hooker and big time hustler Henry Gondorff, who plot to bring down the city's most corrupt racketeer. The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On The Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello Dolly!), bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), and an original score by composer/lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). The Sting takes you back to an era where the blues reigns, the stakes are high, and the dice are always loaded.

BWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET's THE DECALOGUE
by Wesley Doucette - May 24, 2017

Justin Peck's newest work, 'The Decalogue,' was placed at the far end of a daunting program this past Thursday as part of New York City Ballet's expansive 'Here/Now' festival. Following Lynne Taylor-Corbett's resonate 'Chiaroscuro,' Jorma Elo's sublime 'Slice to Sharp,' and Peter Martins' transportive, if overlong, 'Stabat Mater,' The Sting of anticlimax would have been difficult to avoid for even the most robust work. The evening's narrative was moving to an aesthetic statement, but riding these pieces was also a burden of archaic catharsis which 'The Decalogue' is not equipped to shoulder. However, if dislodged from the context of the program, Justin Peck's newest work represents his most mature excavation of dance form and gives hope that ballet can be not simply dressed up in new fashion, but have its soil tilled for invigorating innovation.
