The dialogue-free piece follows a group of high school friends from New York, as they dance their way through the Vietnam War, lost lives, lost loves and lost dreams. James Fox is the Piano Man, singing Joel’s songs from a raised platform above the dancers, led by Ron Todorowski, Holly Cruikshank, David Gomez, Laura Costa Chaud and Matt Dibble. Tharp also directs.
Movin' Out continues its limited season at the Apollo Victoria until 17 July 2006, before embarking on a European tour.
