Ballet of the Dolls: Songs for a Swan
If Myron Johnson wasn't born in a trunk, he should have been. This consummate theater artist, founder and director of Ballet of the Dolls, has been treading the boards with potent and protean physicality for 50 years. That's F-I-F-T-Y years of playing characters from sinister ballet maestros to sizzling chorus boys to poignant creatures reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin's little tramp or Marcel Marceau's conflicted clowns. This intimate look at Johnson's thoughts, memories, hopes, and perceptions, sifted through his inimitable style, is the best Halloween treat since trick-or-treating for martinis.
Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 27. Continues through Nov. 6, 2011
