Movin’ Out coming to Centre’s Norton Center for the Arts
RELEASED: December 4, 2008
Conceived by Tharp, Movin' Out brings two dozen classic Billy Joel songs to electrifying new life as it tells the story of five life-long friends over two turbulent decades. The principal characters are drawn from those who appeared in various Joel tunes: high school sweethearts Brenda and Eddie ("Scenes from an Italian Restaurant"), James ("James"), Judy ("Why Judy Why"), and Tony (Anthony in "Movin' Out").
Time magazine calls Movin' Out, "The #1 show of the year!" The New York Times writes, "…a shimmering portrait of an American generation. These tornado driven dancers and rock musicians propel the audience into delirious ovations. It all adds up to one unforgettable Broadway musical."
