WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fraulein Maria is Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music as re-imagined by the brilliant mind and playful spirit of acclaimed choreographer Doug Elkins. A gender-bending, tour-de-force comedy, Fraulein Maria began as a love letter to Elkins' children, on a tiny stage at Joe's Pub at New York's Public Theater, and is now a bona fide family tradition. The von Trapp children are hoodied hip-hop dancers; cross-dressing nuns cavort across the stage. Set to the original Julie Andrews soundtrack, Elkins's affectionate humor shines through his idiomatic tips of the hat to such dance legends as Martha Graham, George Balanchine, Jose Limon, Paul Taylor and Merce Cunningham. He seamlessly merges modern and popular dance forms including hip-hop and "vogueing," reinventing this beloved 1965 standard into an edgy yet fun cabaret romp.
