Break a Heart

Deservedly, Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap nowadays. The stakes are so high, our expectations are so elaborate—there’s no way it can measure up to the hype. Lucky for us, local choreographers led by the intrepid Wade Madsen are taking down “the most unfortunate holiday of the year,” as they call it. Break a Heart is a cabaret featuring seven dances where love doesn’t conquer, and it often may stink. Choreographers also including Diana Cardiff and Kristina Dillard will direct 30 dancers in the interlocking vignettes of heartache and woe. Greek mythology and The Violent Femmes are also promised. Take a date if you dare. SANDRA KURTZ
