The World Premiere of Thodos Dance Chicago’s Sono’s Journey will take place this Saturday, January 9 on our landmark stage. With the show right around the corner, we are anxious to share the media highlights!
To kick off the New Year, we are thrilled to see Sono’s Journey featured in The Chicago Sun-Times top theater and dance of 2016:
“Melissa Thodos’ company traces the life of Sono Osato, the legendary ballerina (now 96), who grew up in Chicago, joined the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1934 (at the age of 14), and later became a star of American Ballet Theatre.
