The Doo Wop Project

From Bop to Pop! these five charismatic triple-threats from Broadway’s smash hits, Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical, and their hot 5-piece band tear it up with street corner singing for a whole new generation! The show traces the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. DWP takes you on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influence on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and The Four Seasons all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Whitehouse.

The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate — and in some cases entirely reimagine — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. Enjoy a night filled with harmonies and classic ‘60s hits such as Dion and the Belmonts’ I Wonder Why, Thurston Harris’ Little Bitty Pretty One, The Del-Vikings Come and Go With Me, The Capris’ Morse Code of Love and many more. Fun for the entire family, the show also includes doo-wop-inspired renditions of contemporary songs such as Amy Winehouse’s Valerie, Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel and Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours.

Bridgman Packer Dance’s Voyeur and Other Works

Bridgman|Packer Dance will present Voyeur, their highly acclaimed work that received a 2017 New York Dance and Performance Award (The Bessies). Featuring choreographer/performers Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer’s innovative work in “Video Partnering”—the integration of live performance and video technology— Voyeur is inspired by artist Edward Hopper’s world of color, light, perspective, and under-the-surface eroticism. Fragmented moments of private lives are witnessed through windows and doorways. As the performers merge and collide with the video imagery, the presence of a seen or unseen viewer lies at the heart of Voyeur. Voyeur will be paired with other work from Bridgman|Packer Dance’s repertory.
Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, collaborators in choreography and performance and Co-Artistic Directors of Bridgman|Packer Dance, are known for their work integrating live performance and video technology. They were awarded a 2017 New York and Performance Award for Outstanding Production (The Bessies). In New York City they have been presented by Lincoln Center, City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival, 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Festival, Dance Theater Workshop (now New York Live Arts), Central Park Summerstage, Baryshnikov Arts Center, and The Sheen Center.
