The 2001 Tony Award Winner for "Best Special Theatrical Event"
B!, winner of the 2001 Tony Award for "Best Special Theatrical Event" and the 2001 Emmy Award for "Best Choreography," is comprised of 35 brass, percussion and visual performers brought together in a unique explosion of music and theatre. According to Bruce McCabe of the Boston Globe: "Blast! is an exuberant 15-number show that doesn't falter while bridging the categories of classical, blues, jazz, rock n roll, and techno-pop music. Blast! stands, blows, pounds, marches, and whirls with panache. It sent a full house into repeated bursts of cheering and applause."
