THE MADISON THEATRE PRESENTS:A MARK STUART DANCE THEATRE PRODUCTION:WHEN CHANGE COMESA MOVEMENT FORWARDA NEW DANCE MUSICAL
When Change Comes is a powerful dance musical that asks one question:
Can the act of “seeing” each other without judgment or fear break the cycle of intolerance?
Featuring a cast of world-renowned dancers, singers, and musicians, When Change Comes transports audiences through a century of music, movement, and human connection in the shadow of our nation’s most defining moments. Using Mark Stuart Dance Theatre’s explosive brand of storytelling, When Change Comes follows three love stories set against the backdrops of the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, and the LGBTQ Rights Movement. Danced to hit standards from the 1930s, 1960s, and the 2000s, the show features 7 dancers, 3 vocalists, and a 5-piece band.
When Change Comes aims to inspire and empower audiences to create positive change in their communities. This theatrical experience includes a 90-minute performance of When Change Comes, followed by discussions with Mark Stuart and the cast. We will ask: how might we commit to small everyday acts of kindness, learn to truly see each other, and build empathetic dialogue about equality and tolerance?
A Movement Forward exists as a challenge: can we all turn seemingly small acts of kindness into a tidal wave of tolerance?
