The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago concludes its 2016-17 season with the Chicago debut of Liz Gerring Dance Company performing its newest evening-length work Horizon, described as “exuberantly athletic” by The New York Times. “Horizon is a new work for seven dancers centered around the idea of density,” Gerring said. “In this piece, I endeavored to add as much as possible to the space in terms of dancers and movement. With multiple phrases occurring simultaneously, the dance takes the form of a constantly shifting universe full of activity.” With contributions from electronic music composer Michael J. Schumacher, production designer Robert Wierzel, and costume designer Liz Prince, Gerring’s work, performed under a white ceiling cantilevered over the stage, is fresh testimony to her pure, movement-driven action and exhilarating physical surprises in a constantly changing media-saturated stage-world.

Porchlight Music Theatre concludes its 22nd season with the rarely seen Stephen Sondheim musical Marry Me A Little. Reconceived especially for this production and starring Bethany Thomas and Austin Cook, Porchlight breathes new theatrical life and meaning into this revue featuring a collection of trunk songs culled from the final productions of “Anyone Can Whistle,” “Follies,” “Company,” “Forum,” “A Little Night Music,” and other Sondheim favorites. It tells the story of two urban singles, each alone in their apartment, who share a Saturday night of sweet fantasies and deep yearning never knowing that they’re only a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
