ARTISTIC MISSION 

It's pretty simple:

I strive to find my way to spaces where I can tell meaningful stories with like-minded artists. Maybe together, we can make the world a little brighter for somebody.

REVIEWS

Director and choreographer Chaz Wolcott pulls out funny yet grounded performances from the cast, and maintains the proper balance of humor, heart and uniqueness, which is so integral to the show. There are several very effective directorial choices, including a nice ode to A Chorus Line, some fun pre-show "business" that introduces the audience to the spellers through non-verbals, and a chaotic breakout of playground equipment during "Pandemonium." Wolcott also includes well-suited background dances to a few numbers, including "Magic Foot," which are extremely appealing.

REVIEWS

Chaz Wolcott’s choreography is key to that world-building, deployed like a scalpel and a glitter bomb in the correct measure. Jokes – going back to the movie – revolve around the physical lack of comfort strait-laced Charlie and the factory crowd have with the flashier shoes they’re switching to; that stumbling has to sell, has to draw a clear distinction between the ease and the stylized moves of the Angels and the unease of the other characters without turning that stumbling into making the people a joke. It accomplishes that beautifully and helps make the final number, the pumping club anthem “Lift You Up,” with everyone in knee-high red boots and also dancing using the same vocabulary, adding to the emotional quality of the song and the sense of possibility that’s in the DNA of all great dance music.
