The piece will feature the original cast, dancers Alison Kause, Jen Mesch, and Jeannie Vanderkerkhove, and piano performed by the great Roger Admiral. Bashaw’s incredibly energetic, Boogie Demon – Let’s Go! was requested by Bashaw to close out the show. Howard Bashaw is a national treasure, and we’re thrilled to be part of this.
