Saving the World

Stage 773
1225 W Belmont Ave Chicago

Presented by Chicago Tap Theatre, Saving the World is Chicago Tap Theatre's first all-new story show since 2016's award-winning Time Steps and 2017's box office smash Changes. Featuring an original score and live music, and from the creative team behind Time Steps, comes a show with high-stakes drama, witty choreography and thundering rhythms about arrogance, demagogues and the end of the world. CTT Writer-in-Residence (and creator of the world-wide Slam Poetry genre) Marc Kelly Smith weaves a brand new tale of the near future in this world premiere. As a corporation begins to aid those hit by ever-increasing natural disasters, a collision between helping those who need it most and profiting mightily from them is looming. Throughout the performance, tap dancers, with the aid of video projection, embody the natural disasters, including tornadoes and tsunamis.

Chicago Tribune - Recommended

"...Yonally has a knack for nuanced tap choreography like no other — drawing emotion from the timbre and rhythms of each step, and traveling it up the body. As the haughty and obnoxious Worthington, he uses stereotypical Broadway moves (and there’s even a kick line) and intentionally overconfident, boisterous body language. Pfaff Yonally as the kind-hearted soul who’s trying to do right by her employees has a softer, yet conflicted tone. Or there’s Uttich, who leads the charge on the merger with Worthington and busily taps out tweets and texts with her toes as she clutches an iDevice."
