Tharp: Dance In Popular Form

How do you bring dance to a wider audience? You make it a hit in the popular venues, says Twyla Tharp. Her Billy Joel musical has been a breakout hit: “The musical passed the thousand-performance mark in June and still grosses nearly a half million dollars weekly on Broadway. The national tour that arrives at the Dallas Summer Musicals Wednesday has been on the road for 18 months.”
