"The new music by composer Dennis Deal is sophisticated and fresh. The combination of new contemporary theater tunes and songs from the classic American songbook make a truly unique entertainment.
The concept is simple—a young dance couple in today’s world, lament about the changing theater and sing of their obsession with the ideal way dance teams, such as Gene and Judy and Fred and Ginger, partnered together in the old movies. Within that scenario, they meticulously recreate famous movie dances with commitment and charm. Trading Places features the astounding talents of Jeff Veazey and Susan Stroman. They sing, they dance, they act, and they do it all in one take. They are supported throughout the evening by an ensemble of MGM lovelies. This show dares to bring melody, wit and elegance to an MTV world."
