Nicholas Leichter’s The Whiz: Obamaland at Abrons Art Centerhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/nicholas-leichter-dances-whizardry/854/
Can you describe what the audience will be experiencing at Abrons?
A lot! It’s dance but it’s clearly not a dance concert. Nor is it a play or musical theater but rather a spectacle of song, dance, theater, cabaret and performance that has something of a theatrical through-line. It’s essentially Monstah’s journey. It’s his dream sequence where he’s experiencing/creating this world, some of which has actual characters from the tradition and some that expand the ideas of the tradition. It’s extremely visual, physical, colorful, funny, silly, scary, emotional.
