Ticketing Information

Set during the Great Depression, Black Tuesday brings to life the valiant souls of the ’30s. With the backdrop of Shantytown, vaudevillians, pimps, doughboys, showgirls, and other characters populate the streets, portraying both its terrible effects of the era and the nation’s can-do spirit.

Dreamachine delves into humankind’s fascination with machines and their inventors. “Dreamachine is my playground,” says Lovette, a space where creativity knows no bounds and imagination launches into its own universe. Set to Michael Daugherty’s mesmerizing percussion suit, with set & costumes by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton, this triptych of fantastical worlds fits beautifully in the Taylor universe.

“It takes a genius to upstage another genius, and that’s just about what Paul Taylor accomplished in his deliciously berserk dance version of Igor Stravinsky’s hallowed, epoch-making score [Le Sacre de Printemps]… Taylor uses this musical masterpiece as if it were simply a fiendishly interesting piece of music… in devising a dance charade of ever so brittle, arch and waspish humor.” – Alan M. Kriegsman, The Washington Post
