A gleeful romp through some of Broadway's most beloved numbers and two exciting world premieres will take center stage as Smuin Ballet closes out its 20th anniversary season with XXcentric. Choreographed by the company's late, great founder Michael Smuin, Dancin' With Gershwin explores the evolution and reinvention of American dance, with a little help from the Great White Way. The world-premiere ballet But now I must rest comes from Smuin choreographer-in-residence Amy Seiwert and draws inspiration from the lush music of Cesária Évora, aka the Queen of Morna. The program's other world-premiere piece, choreographer Val Caniparoli's Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), blends the music of Vivaldi and the company's high-energy athleticism with wit and reflective beauty.

Reviews & Ratings
Jim Jefferies, hailing from Australia, headlines around the globe. One of the most sought after comedians, his shows sell out annually at Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Edinburgh’s Fringe Comedy Festival. His unprecedented rise in the comedy world is due to his charming, Carlinesque storytelling. Always surprising and controversial, his Jim takes on his favourite subjects of religion, politics and sex.
Jim can currently be seen in his Showtime one hour comedy special “Alcoholocaust” which played to record breaking ratings this August. His debut on HBO with “Jim Jefferies: I Swear to God,” was met with rave reviews. Jim’s bold and painfully honest commentary captivated all who tuned in. Jim has also been seen on HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton” and he hosted “Live at Gotham” for Comedy Central.
Most recently, Jim has shot a pilot for F/X based on his stand-up. He stars in this show which he also wrote and produced and can be expected to air in 2012. Jim is already working on his next one hour comedy special.
