Adapted from Henry James's classic 1903 novella, The Beast in the Jungle is the story of John Marcher, a man haunted by personal demons, whose great yet unfulfilled love affair with an unforgettable woman spans decades and continents. With a waltz-inspired instrumental score and dazzling choreography that traverses the worlds of ballet and contemporary dance, this powerful and romantic tale of love and loss reunites the remarkable creative team behind the Vineyard's acclaimed The Scottsboro Boys.
The Beast in the Jungle fuses dance, drama, and music by multi-Tony Award-winning composer John Kander (Cabaret), Tony-nominated playwright David Thompson (Flora, the Red Menace), and multi-Tony-winning director-choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers).
Broadway Bares, the sexy striptease spectacular with hypnotic choreography returns to Hammerstein Ballroom.

Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Jerry Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. In Broadway Bares's first year, Mitchell and six of his friends danced on a New York City bar and raised $8,000.

Made to Dance in Burning Buildings is about Ava, a young black woman who is raped by her boyfriend's friends while he watches; she develops PTSD as a result. Metaphorically, she fractures into five different women who each represent a different facet of her personality (Romance, Despair, Madness, Perseverance, and Missing You). Poetically, these women narrate her journey through PTSD while she, her first love, and her abusers explore through dance the trauma and the events leading up to it.
