Using dance, video, images and text, world renowned contemporary choreographer David Roussève creates a new coming-of-age story for the Twitter generation with his latest commissioned work, Stardust. A touring show performed by Roussève's long-running multicultural dance theatre troupe, REALITY, Stardust is a glimpse into the life of a gay African-American teenager who appears only through his unanswered texts, which are projected on screen. Dancers weave jazz-inflected movements with storytelling techniques around the texts to create an immersive experience unlike any other that explores the evolving nature of intimacy in our technology-driven world.

The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred
Musical Theatre West is honored to present a benefit “First Look” screening of the film version of Forever Plaid, starring original “Plaids” Stan Chandler, David Engel and Larry Raben, as well as Daniel Reichard, best known as one of the stars of the Broadway production of Jersey Boys. The event features a screening of the film preceded by dinner onstage (for holders of dinner tickets) at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center with the cast, a question and answer session following the screening with cast members and production staff including Forever Plaid creator Stuart Ross, and a dessert reception to cap off the evening.
The film version of Forever Plaid is based on the highly successful stage production of the same name, one of the most popular musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950s on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was. Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they’re not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the ’50s.
