Dance Dance Wednesday Goes to the Tonys: Movin' Out (2003)
Dance legend Twyla Tharp directed and choreographed the Billy Joel juke box musical Movin’ Out and she won a Tony for her choreography. It’s no surprise as she cooked up a bevvy of incredible modern dance to pair with Joel’s song book to tell the story of a generation of American youth growing up on Long Island during the 1960s and their experiences with the Vietnam War. Here’s the company’s performance from the 2003 Tonys.
Next week we’ll feature the winner of this year’s Tony for choreography. The Tony Awards air this coming Sunday, June 7, on CBS at 8pm ET.
