'WTTG' is the story of Jack and Steve, owners of The Grand Theatre. After a few years of mild success, the boys' financial well had dried up, and they needed a new business draw. Steve inspires Jack to write their own show; a legendary evening that celebrated the very history the venue was built on.
Together, Jack and Steve represent two roles in society: the tormented artist, & the stifled artist. One will do whatever it takes to create his work of art, while the other is left feeling more void of purpose than he ever has. However, our conclusion brings the two men together, inspired by their need for creativity, no matter what form it takes.
Incorporated in 'WTTG' is the lives of five legendary women: Crawford, Charisse, Rogers, Minnelli, and MacLaine. Each women represents one of the five elements of cabaret, and plays a pivotal role in cabaret history. Through their stories we hope to inspire our audiences to reconnect with their passion for creativity.
This production creates a new performance platform for jazz artists. Jazz is one of the oldest styles in dance history. Over the years, it has often been left under-evolved and over-stereotyped. There is currently not a large enough platform to continue to evolve this style of dance. By producing 'WTTG', JHT is creating work for artists that likely would have been left without a career path in the arts. We are also taking a big step towards re-energizing the love for jazz, and continuing its evolution in the world of dance.
