Some great dancinb but a littled disjointed and even though only 1 1/2 hours was a little draggy. Be sure and read synopsis first to get what is going on.

It is amazing that a show with likely less than 100 spoken words can communicate so well. The staging and dance recreated beautiful images of a Bay Area icon.

SFB dancers utterly wasted on this thing.
I left after maybe 30 minutes so it may have improved.
Don't use terrific dancers unless you give them something worthy of their talent.

Description

This radically original fusion of movement and theater explores 100 years in the life of North Beach nightspot Tosca Café, conjuring a world in which love, betrayal, and hope emerge from the shadows and disappear with the clink of a glass. __The Tosca Project __brings world-renowned dancers from San Francisco Ballet, including prima ballerina Sabina Allemann, together with such acclaimed actors as The Overcoat‘s Peter Anderson and A.C.T.’s own Jack Willis (Rock ‘n’ Roll). Loosely structured around the themes of Puccini’s Tosca, this imaginative new work is gorgeously choreographed, achingly moving, and scored with some of the best music ever made, from Hendrix to Stravinsky.
