A Little Bit of Broadway

Movin' Out

Is it a truly a musical or is it a ballet? That’s the big debate over the 2002 Movin' Out, using the music of Billy Joel to create an evening of dance. And dance they do – Brenda and Eddie, James, Judy and Tony, all the while a rock band overhead plays Joel’s music. It did OK – nominated for 7 Tony’s with Twyla Tharp winning for best choreography. If you like dance, you’ll like this musical. If you want a traditional musical, this isn’t it. But listening to the music is alwaya a pleasure.
