Come along on a zany trip brimming with playfulness and anxiety from life behind the scenes. Set backstage during the final moments before the curtain rises, this cabaret-style performance features a dance fanatic’s dream music score — from Broadway classics to contemporary classical music to ‘80s pop hits — as well as some very special guest performers from the Winona community. The result is a buzz-worthy cocktail of biting satire, quick-witted physical comedy, and gentle moments of deep pathos that celebrates and extends the creative relationship of Nicole Wolcott and Larry Keigwin, co-founders of KEIGWIN + COMPANY.
With cabaret-style seating, a cash bar, and occasional mature content, Places Please! is perfect for date night but may not be suitable for some young audience members. Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts will be offering on-site child care during the 7 pm performance. Click here to learn more about or register your child for Kids Night Out.
“Places Please! acts like a love letter to the stage. By basking in the artifice and then taking it to task, Keigwin and Wolcott highlight the absurdity and sublimity that put the show in show business.”Erin Bomboy
“Conceived as a peek into backstage, preshow preparations, the evening charts the ups and downs of making dance and making it in New York’s dance world, told through movement and memories culled from their 16-year collaboration. It’s a campy snapshot of the creative process, and a tribute to a long, entertaining friendship.”Brian Schaefer
