"Creating spare but incisive characters and relationships is something at which choreographer Mei-Ling Stuart has become masterful."

The Something-ettes, Off and On (2010)

This pink-wigged doo-wop fantasy was inspired by the sound of high heels on pavement late at night. The dancers limp around in one high heels and channel back-up singers. Finally one breaks away, trades her wig and sequins for pajamas, and belts out a tune to herself in a full-length mirror.
