“Vastly amusing… sexy and full of wit”

“Pacific Northwest Ballet will also perform Jerome Robbins’ Fancy Free, Twyla Tharp’s That’s Life from Nine Sinatra Songs and Susan Stroman’s new Take Five … More Or Less, with music by Dave Brubeck. Susan Stroman’s Take Five … More or Less, is set to music closely associated with Dave Brubeck, including ‘Take Five.’ The piece is vastly amusing, often sexy and full of wit. While Stroman made her name in the world of the American musical, rather than ballet, she is now beginning to do work for important companies like New York City Ballet and the Martha Graham Dance Company. Take Five is her first collaboration with Pacific Northwest Ballet.”
