THE ACTUAL DANCE with Chuk Obasi
Mon, June 20, 2016, 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
A special showcase performance of The Actual Dance starring for the first time Chuk Obasi and adapted for multi-faith and multi-cultural audiences.
The Actual Dance is a graceful and inspiring love story. Theater that opens a rare window into the mind and soul of a husband and caregiver. The audience becomes transfixed as the actor weaves in and out of a mystical Ballroom. A tale of the human heart and the power of love to transform and persevere.
When first noticing his wife at the age of sixteen, Sam Simon, the character in the play, could not predict the profound connection they would have. Two halves of the same whole. Their love would be tested …and the ringing in Sam’s ear was not as one would expect, in fact it was an orchestra, playing the music of his life – The Actual Dance
This performance is an adaptation of the original play.
