Sarasota News Leader May 3, 2013 Page 100 Honea, has choreographed twice before for Theatre of Dreams. This year, she created Broke & Blues, a piece that includes 14 dancers and music from Claude Bolling, a jazz pianist. "My piece is a jazzy take on classical," said Honea in the release. Bertoni's piece, which also features just a piano, uses two compositions from ragtime composer Scott Joplin. Bertoni adds that he found his inspiration for the 10-minute piece from American actor, dancer and musical theater choreographer Bob Fosse. Set to a grand piano playing the music of Franz Schubert, Graziano's piece is "far different than Symphony of Sorrows, his 2012 Theatre of Dreams creation," the release notes. Titled, Valsinhas, his new work "is lighthearted and playful," the release adds. Making his Theatre of Dreams debut, Learned will put seven dancers on stage for his comedic Scenes De Ballet, the release continues. It is a farce "inspired by the multitude of ballet rehearsals Learned has attended over the years," the release says. "People's natural reaction to music is to dance. This piece is going to illuminate that fact and show people being drawn towards the piano," Graziano says in the release. Tickets may be purchased online 24 hours a day, seven days a week with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. The box office may be contacted by calling 359-0099, Ext. 101.
