Milling About visits a special sneak preview of American Dance Machine where 22 dancers perform classic Broadway dance numbers reimagined by some of the dance world's best choreographers. Host Robin Milling speaks with dancer/singer Lori Ann Ferreri (On The Town, Wicked) who says she felt guided by her mentor, A Chorus Line's Donna McKechnie for her rendition of Music & The Mirror. Tyler Hanes (On The Town, A Chorus Line, Sweet Charity) who performs Tommy Tune's We'll Take A Glass from Grand Hotel, and duets with his favorite New York City Ballet soloist Gina Pazcoguin, says working on the New York stage is a dream come true.
Director Wayne Cilento (Wicked, Sweet Charity revival, The Who's Tommy) who played Mike in A Chorus Line, reunites with the legendary Cassie, Donna McKechnie. They share what it's like coming full circle as dancers to behind-the-scenes, working with Artistic Director Nikki Feirt Atkins to bring a fresh approach to a dance theatrical experience.
American Dance Machine premiering December 21 at The Joyce Theater in New York City, features works from A Chorus Line, Bubbling Brown Sugar, Singin' In The Rain, West Side Story, and The Who's Tommy; to name a few.
