This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great music. Drawing on more than 2000 years of tradition, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, plate-twirling, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

Inspired by the classic RKO film musical “Swing Time,” Never Gonna Dance features some of the greatest music by Jerome Kern paired up with legendary lyricists like Johnny Mercer, Ira Gershwin and Oscar Hammerstein. A ne’er-do-well goes to New York to make his fortune doing anything but dancing, so of course the show fills the stage with resplendent dance numbers. Songs include “The Way You Look Tonight,” “A Fine Romance” and “I Won’t Dance.”</p> <p>Also appearing will be: Harriet Harris (TV's "Desperate Housewives," and a Tony award-winning actress for her role in "Thoroughly Modern Millie") and Henry Polic II (TV's "Webster" & Mel Brooks' "When Things Were Rotten").</p>
