The evening’s full-on, multidimensional production is one we still talk about to this day—about a month later. For those who have not attended a Project Ethos event, consider it the beautiful, collision site of fashion, art, and music. It is also the epicenter of inspiration for fashion professionals, including myself.
Many movies are currently being made into musicals. For Billy Elliot, it’s a transition that not only makes sense, but which opens up additional possibilities. Because the story line is about dance, Billy Elliot not only fits the stage, it belongs on stage. There is an energy elicited with live dance performances that can never be captured in quite the same way on screen.
The new production of RED HOT PATRIOT: The Kickass Wit of Molly Ivins plays at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles until February 19, 2012. This 75-minute show is an opportunity to spend an evening enjoying two incredible women.
As the house lights dim, a huge mirrored ball descends from the ceiling and starts spinning, spilling light everywhere in the theatre. Disco music accompanies the glimmering effects, and the energy and excitement of this roaring musical takes off.

Whatever one’s reaction to seeing The Book of Mormon might be, it is safe to say that there has never been anything like it on Broadway.
To describe the experience of attending Symphony for the Dance Floor, it is important to give just a little background on the genesis of the project. Through a mutual friend, violinist/composer Daniel Roumain’s work was introduced to the renowned photographer Jonathan Mannion, best known for his work with Hip Hop and sports icons like Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Kobe Bryant, and Lance Armstrong. Both artists fell in love with the other’s work, and Symphony for the Dance Floor was born. Roumain’s music inhabits various spots along the continuum from Hip Hop to western classical music with other cultural influences in between.
