ABOUT THE SHOW

Emmy-winning dancer/choreographer Suzy Miller has done it again with Play On! A Suzy Miller Dance Spectacular. Taking Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets as her inspiration, Suzy has crafted yet another high-energy, dance-filled, musical comedy spectacular. The title is taken from Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night, where Duke Orsino declares: “If music be the food of love, play on!” You’ll find yourself singing along, tapping your feet and shouting for more as Suzy and her company of dancers treat you to flights of fancy from Shakespeare to Sondheim and beyond!
