Summer is almost here, and Ballets with a Twist is ready to ring it in right! New York City’s next-generation dance company at Hamilton Stage on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, June 1 at 3:00 pm.
The company’s fourth season at Hamilton will feature a pair of polar opposite Cocktail Hour premieres: “Eau de Vie,” a breathtakingly bright, frothy spirit fresh from the finest Continental salon, and “The Boilermaker,” a quintessentially American quaff with a touch of true grit. In celebration of the 60-year anniversary of The Tonight Show, the company will also pay tribute to the King of Comedy with a revival of The Johnny Show, a beguiling blend of “honky-tonk, circus and comic revue” (Mainzer Rhein Zeitung, Germany). Cameo appearances by young New Jersey dancers will add a touch of local flavor to the production.
Critics and audience members agree: Cocktail Hour is an artistically seductive must-see. The Huffington Post raves that Klaus is “blasting the boundaries between high art and entertainment,” and that her style is a distinctive mix of “Hollywood glitz and New York polish,” while The New York Times praises her as “witty and fantastic.” Ballets with a Twist has also caught the attention of The Wall Street Journal, New York City’s PIX11 Morning News, and WKYC-TV in Cleveland.
