Mark Morris Dance Group presents “The Look of Love” at the BroadStage

Following the roaring success of his Beatles tribute Pepperland, Mark Morris teams up again with musical collaborator Ethan Iverson (The Bad Plus) for The Look of Love, a wistful and heartfelt homage to the chart-topping songs of Burt Bacharach. A towering figure of popular music, Bacharach is known for his soaring melodies and unique orchestrations influenced by jazz, rock, and Brazilian music — his longtime lyricist Hal David providing unsentimental, poignant lyrics.

“I’ve found an ideal collaborator in Mark Morris, whose brilliant choreography and deep musicality give songs new meaning and dimension through movement.” 

—Burt Bacharach.

This evening-length work features original choreography by Morris, costumes by Isaac Mizrahi, and new musical arrangements by Iverson, performed by an ensemble of piano, trumpet, bass, and percussion, with singer, actress, and Broadway star Marcy Harriell on lead vocals.

Stay for opening night, then party the night away!
