License to Dream

Book and lyrics by Fred Newman; Music by David Truskinoff
Directed by David Nackman; Choreography by Javier Dzul

April 29 - June 5, 2011

License to Dream brings together nine inner-city youth and six professional modern dancer/aerialists from the acclaimed Dzul Dance company. This provocative musical is set at a summer dance camp for underprivileged kids, "Camp Development", in the Hamptons. Neither the underpaid dance counselors nor the poor campers want to be there, and certainly not with each other. With songs by Newman-Truskinoff and choreography by Javier Dzul, sparks fly when East New York meets East Hampton. Though only 90 miles apart, the distance between those who dream and those who have no reason to, requires more than a bridge to connect them.
