WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Told through the choreography of Twyla Tharp and more than two dozen of Billy Joel's songs, Movin' Out is the story of lifelong friends through two turbulent decades that change them and the world around them forever. Songs like "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "We Didn't Start the Fire," and "Pressure" all come together to weave a musical backdrop which beautifully complements Tharp's innovative choreography. The songs and dance take audiences through a poignant narrative which traces the lives of five principal characters through three crucial times in their lives: post-World War II idealism, the Vietnam War and its subsequent unrest, and finally, survival.
