‘Movin? Out’ Opens Tonight

Aubrey Canfield

So, classes have started and students are busy buying scantrons and hunting down that elusive biology lab workbook. But just because the semester has begun doesn’t mean the fun needs to end. ‘Movin’ Out,’ the Grammy Award winning Broadway musical, featuring the music of Billy Joel, is at the Plaza Del Sol Performance Hall Jan. 20 and 21 at 8 p.m.

‘Movin’ Out’ is the 2003 Tony-Award winner for best choreography and best orchestrations. The show follows Brenda, Eddie, James, Judy and Tony during the Vietnam War era and its perplexing aftermath. Struggling to find an identity in a confusing time, these five friends come together to try and make sense of the lives they lead and the world they live in.

Billy Joel’s classic songs ‘It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me’, ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ and ‘Uptown Girl’ are just a few of the familiar tunes that help tell their story. Unlike a traditional Broadway Musical, the show’s staging consists of a main pianist / vocalist accompanied by a band and chorus who are usually suspended over the stage. The main action of the show is a series of dances arranged by the world-renowned and Tony-Award winning choreographer Twyla Tharp.
