Doug Varone and Dancers

November 17 – 18, 2023
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Doug “Varone’s ability to convey depths of emotion through highly charged, physically exciting choreography has made him a rarity among his generation.” (The New York Times) Now, in the Philadelphia premiere of Somewhere, he reimagines Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story by stripping away the iconic narrative. Focusing solely on this much-loved and familiar score, the result is pure and vibrant, brimming with nuance and emotional heft. “Many choreographers can create interesting movement; few can make it mean so much.” (Chicago Tribune)
