Heiress Productions presents the New York premiere of THREE MOVEMENTS by Martin Zimmerman from October 17 – 26 at the Studio Theatre, Theatre Row (410 W. 42nd Street, NYC). Tickets are $18 and are available at http://www.ticketcentral.com or by phone at 212-279-4200.
Based on the life of ballet legend George Balanchine, THREE MOVEMENTS follows a fictional choreographer, Alex, as he nurses polio-stricken Sonia, his wife and his greatest dancer. Unable to face the reality that she will never dance again, he convinces himself that he can save his muse. When he becomes frustrated with her lack of progress, though, he leaves her to pursue a promising young dancer, Lindsay. The play examines the complex relationship between choreographer and dancer, the power of eroticism in art, and how people choose (or refuse) to confront illness and the aging process.
THREE MOVEMENTS is directed by Maura Farver and choreographed by Avichai Scher. Set design is by Josh Zangen, costume design is by Melinda C. Basaca, lighting design is by Joel E. Silver and sound design is by Sharath Patel. Featuring Erin Fogarty, Maria Portman Kelly and Mike Timoney.
Heiress Productions is a not-for-profit organization committed to raising cancer awareness and funds through entertaining and inspirational professional theatre productions. The company produced Lunch Hour by Jean Kerr in May 2007 and James Sherman's farce Affluenza! in March 2008.
Proceeds from THREE MOVEMENTS will benefit Us TOO, a grassroots organization started in 1990 by prostate cancer survivors to serve prostate cancer survivors, their spouses/partners and families.
THREE MOVEMENTS will be performed from October 17 – 26, 2008 at the Studio Theatre, Theatre Row (410 W. 42nd Street, NYC) with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm, Monday and Tuesday at 7pm.
