Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More

I had a great time. I wish that the Palace of Fine Arts would put up a sign and direct attendees to the Gold Star line...I was in line for five minutes before some made an announcment. Very happy with my seats as always. I highly recommend this service. Great to see the boys again!

The Kids In the Hall (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson) specialize in an irreverent, offbeat, sometimes dark, sometimes ridiculous brand of humor. Their sketch comedy television series aired new episodes on various networks from 1989 to 1994. The Kids take their name from a line comedian Jack Benny often used after telling a joke, “I got this one from the kids in the hall” — referring to aspiring joke writers who would hang around outside his office. Not long after forming in Toronto in 1984, Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels caught one of their shows and offered a television deal.
Over the course of the show’s run, the Kids were recognized numerous times with nominations for various awards, including an Emmy nomination in 1995. The Kids each went on to successful solo work, but reformed and released the film Kids In the Hall Brain Candy in 1995. They successfully toured in 2000 and 2003.
