With shows Aug. 14 and 19, Yazbeck pays tribute to the MGM musicals of days gone by and influential performers like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Here, Yazbeck takes on the jazzy "Nothing I Do" and adds some tap steps that would do Astaire and Kelly proud. See Yazbeck chat about his "dream role" in On the Town.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
