About the Show

Elvis & The Man in Black
Choreographed by James Kudelka and Laurence Lemieux


The Man In Black is a celebration of American working-class grit and the man whose voice embodied it so movingly.  Only such a master of his craft as James Kudelka could draw from the vernacular of American country-western dance styles to create a work so inventive, so alert to the music and their lyrics, and so deeply moving.

Looking For Elvis explores the life of a young Elvis through interviews and songs.  Looking For Elvis presents a picture of a man who was overtaken by his fame.  Laurence Lemieux’s Looking For Elvis pulls from interviews, songs and dance to explore the dual public/private life of a young Elvis Presley.
