  1. Twyla Tharp/Billy Joel musical in Movin' Out at Apollo, Victoria

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 18 April 2006Performance ongoing

    “the dance is terrific. Tharp’s kids – and, really, this show is all about the guys – kick up a storm.” 

  2. Twyla Tharp/Billy Joel musical in Movin' Out at Apollo, Victoria

    Press Review Alastair Macaulay , Financial Times, Tuesday 18 April 2006Performance Ongoing

    “The plot is a thinner excuse for dancing than the feeblest 19th-century ballet, and there are as many examples of virtuoso spinning and jumping and acrobatics as are to be found in entire ballet galas.”

    Press Review Charles Spenser, Telegraph, Wednesday 12 April 2006Performance ongoing
