WE ASKED THE CAST OF REESE THOMPSON’S “KIDS PLAY” TO GIVE US A LIST OF THEIR FAVORITE SONGS FROM THE 90’S. CHOREOGRAPHER BENJAMIN ROWAN MADE A LITTLE MIX TAPE AND BROUGHT MATTHEW BOVEE, ERIN MARGARET PETTIGREW AND JOY DONZE INTO THE REHEARSAL ROOM. THEY MADE A LITTLE VIDEO.
“For me, dance and movement in theatre can tell a story that words can’t on their own,” says Playwright Reese Thompson, “In KIDS PLAY, it sorta works to map this perilous trajectory of adolescence. It’s also a way for the characters to carve out a space where they can express themselves (and their desires) without judgement from a world they’re only beginning to realize is hostile to misfits like themselves.”
