FRAULEIN MARIA at Hartford Stage June 15th, 2011 - June 26th, 2011
Conceived and choreographed by Doug Elkins Directed by Barbara Karger and Michael Preston
Fräulein Maria celebrates Rodgers & Hammerstein's timeless songs from The Sound of Music as re-imagined by acclaimed choreographer Doug Elkins. Set to the 1965 movie soundtrack, Elkins' affectionate humor shines through his idiomatic tips of the hat to such dance legends as Martha Graham, Paul Taylor and Merce Cunningham. He merges modern and popular dance forms including hip hop and "vogueing," reinventing this beloved classic into an edgy and fun cabaret romp. Recommended for everyone, including children 5 and older. Presented in cooperation with The Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company. www.rnh.com
