4. Savion Glover: SoLe Sanctuary
When: Wed, Jan 23rd: 8PM
Location: Page Auditorium
Contact: Duke University Box Office: tickets@duke.edu | 919.684.4444
Cost: DUKE STUDENTS: $10 | Other: $52, $42, $26
Almost singlehandedly, Savion Glover revived the art of tap-dancing with his unorthodox Broadway smash Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk. Before that defining success, he was the star pupil of Sammy Davis, Jr. and Gregory Hines, who called Glover “possibly the best tap dancer that ever lived.” These legends and others preside in spirit over SoLe Sanctuary, Glover’s powerfully elegiac new duet with Marshall Davis, Jr.
“Barebones and pure, full of . . . rhythmic innovation” (NY Times), SoLe Sanctuary is tightly focused on a bravura whirlwind of original and quoted steps. With fury, grace, and awesome athleticism, Glover embodies 150 years of tap in his lithe body. This rich, tumultuous history weighs heavily on his shoulders but not his feet. At Page Auditorium, tap receives an allusive love letter from its signal genius and most serious advocate.
*Price valid for 2 tickets per ID.
**Please arrive early. Late seating restrictions may be in effect.**

5. Cabaret by Hoof 'N' Horn

Hoof 'n' Horn, the south's oldest student-run musical theatre group, is proud to present this production of Cabaret. Cabaret takes place during the early 1930s in Berlin, Germany. At this time, cabarets were filled to the brim with prostitutes, Jews, homosexuals, and others considered social outcasts by the Third Reich. The musical centers on a seedy cabaret where Sally Bowles, the headliner, and the eccentric Master of Ceremonies (Emcee) perform. Sally falls in and out of love with an American, named Cliff, who struggles to understand why anyone would want to stay in Germany under the current conditions. Sally and Cliff stay at the apartment complex run by Fräuline Schneider. Fräuline Schneider falls for the pineapple salesmen, Herr Schultz, but she breaks off her engagement to the man because he is Jewish. Everything that happens within the cabaret is satirical commentary on how the Nazi regime negatively affected life in Germany. Cabaret is a dark, raunchy, hilarious, tear-jerker of a musical. There is nothing apologetic about this phenomenal show. Cabaret will be an experience you will never forget, and don't want to miss your opportunity to see it! **Please arrive early. Late seating restrictions may be in effect.**
