Join us for an overnight trip to the Big Apple and take in what the New York Times is calling a “dazzling new dance musical”: Come Fly Away, featuring the music of Frank Sinatra and choreography of Tony Award-winner Twyla Tharp.
Here’s an excerpt from the New York Times review:
In this dazzling new dance musical, which opened Thursday night at the Marquis Theater, Ms. Tharp deploys a stage full of brilliant performers to heighten the theatrical allure of ballroom dance, complementing the immortal appeal of Sinatraâ€™s singing with movement that captures the underlying emotional tensions in it. The yearning to connect and the impulse toward flight â€” those contradictory verities of romantic entanglement â€” take sharp visceral form in Ms. Tharpâ€™s fast, flashing, remarkably intricate dances.
