Girl Power Unites Capezio A.C.E. Award Winners
Since winning the Capezio A.C.E. Awards last summer, Melinda Sullivan and runners-up Dana Foglia and Bree Hafen have been hard at work, creating full-length performances to premiere in New York City. The three women—the first all-female group to sweep the A.C.E. Awards—have decided to combine their prize money for a festival-style performance run August 5–8 at The Ailey CitiGroup Theater. Talk about teamwork!
On August 5 and 6, Sullivan will present her evening-length work, Gone, an extended version of the gritty tap theater piece she showed at the 2012 A.C.E. Awards. Hafen and Foglia will split the bill on the festival’s second two nights. There’s a show at 5:30 and 8:30 each night. Could there be a better way to wrap up a day at the DT Summit? Tickets are $25, available here.
