My half of the concert is called “ALL OVERETT” ….
Meet the Double-Threat Trio: three unfortunate performers who can’t master their third skill to save their lives.
Meet a starry-eyed young girl who wants to be a clinically insane Scottish murderess when she grows up.
Meet the grandson from Dirty Dancing (you know, the one with “two hotels”) and find out what he REALLY wants to say to the Jennifer Grey character.
Meet other people too. Oh, you don’t know them? YOU SHOULD.
They’ll be played by the likes of Elena Shaddow (La Cage Aux Folles), Amy Justman (Company), Amanda Leigh Cobb (The Importance of Being Earnest), Michael Lluberes (Dirty Dancing), Aspen Vincent (American Idiot), Jaclyn Huberman (I Love You Because), Kristine Reese (Wicked), Craig Laurie (Jersey Boys), F. Michael Haynie (We The People) and Adam (The Light in the Piazza) himself.
Direction by Dev Janki (Zanna Don’t), musical direction by Andy Einhorn (Sondheim on Sondheim).
Get Overett. ALL OVERETT.

The cast of DIRTY DANCING puts on a variety show to benefit the Joffrey Ballet. Produced by Kaitlin Hopkins, who plays Marjorie Houseman in DIRTY DANCING, the benefit features performances by most of the cast, all doing material of their own choosing. Adam writes and performs a number especially for the occasion: “By Way of Introduction,” where he introduces himself as an actor who sings … surrounded by this cast of dazzlingly stellar dancers. Joining Adam in performing the song are DIRTY DANCING cast members Lauralyn McClelland, Charlie Logan, and Easton Smith, with choreography by Easton Smith. The event is hosted by Joffrey alumna Britta Lazenga (Penny in DIRTY DANCING) and Gary Lynch (Moe Pressman in DIRTY DANCING).
