Hands on a Hard Body, the Musical
We're Excited About: Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied brings his moves the La Jolla Playhouse's musical adaptation of the 1997 documentary about a Texas endurance contest that challenges people to keep their hand on a new pickup truck for days. (The person who keeps his-her hand on the truck the longest no squatting or leaning allowed drives it home.) As if that odd pairing isn't exciting enough, the show also includes songs co-written by Phish front man Trey Anastasio and a book by Grey Gardens-scribe Doug Wright. Opens April 27.
