Broadway’s Susan Stroman’s tribute to the silver screen era features two unique stories: “The Blue Necklace” is a 1920s Cinderella story and “Makin’ Whoopee” portrays a bachelor’s race to find the perfect wife and inherit millions.
Double Feature, Susan Stroman’s first full length work for the Company, was created in 2004 as part of the Balanchine 100: The Centennial Celebration. Other works she has since made for NYCB include Blossom Got Kissed, created in 1999, and a companion piece, Frankie and Johnny… and Rose, created in 2011.
Double Feature is comprised of two unique stories including “The Blue Necklace”, a classic melodrama, and “Makin’ Whoopee”, a raucous comedy, both inspired by the silent film era.
The Blue Necklace: 1 hour, 9 minutes, Makin' Whoopee: 43 minutes
