Fräulein Maria is Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music as re-imagined by the playful spirit of acclaimed choreographer Doug Elkins. Fräulein Maria began as a love letter to Elkins' children and is now a bona fide family tradition as well as a gender bending, tour-de-force comedy. Set to the 1965 movie soundtrack, Elkins' affectionate humor shines through his idiomatic tips of the hat to such dance legends as Martha Graham, Paul Taylor and Merce Cunningham. He seamlessly merges modern and popular dance forms including hip-hop and "vogueing," reinventing this beloved classic into an edgy and fun cabaret romp. Recommended for everyone, including children 5 and older.
