SHOWDOWN- Friday, March 28, 2014
Two exciting shows from The Bang Group!

ShowDown- Friday, March 28th at 8:00pm

Working with recordings from Irving Berlin’s musical comedy classic, “Annie Get Your Gun,” made by Judy Garland and Howard Keel for the 1949 MGM, ShowDown takes the songs out of their original narrative context and places them in a wholly contemporary, choreographic world. It unravels the venerable musical’s themes of a show down between the sexes, the lure of show business and the juncture of love and ambition with freewheeling and anarchic vigor. No one is Annie and yet, perhaps, everyone is. Parker treats the score seriously as music and poetry and allows the humor to bubble up inevitably where it will. ShowDown will feature guests Lorraine Chapman, Kelli Edwards, and Nicole Pierce.
