Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is making a long stop in Chicago during their 18-city tour this month. With an amazing opening this last friday at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, the show will run from March 6-15 with tickets $32-97. Robrt Battle has lead the company in an exceptional direction, after accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of the one and only Alvin Ailey. Their signature piece Revelations was exceptional, and Episodes was extremely sensual.
“For over 45 years the Auditorium has been the Chicago home for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and we are once again thrilled to have them back on our stage to celebrate with us during our milestone 125th Anniversary Season,” said Auditorium Theatre Executive Director Brett Batterson. “The Presidential Medal of Freedom that was recently awarded to Alvin Ailey could not have been more deserved and speaks to the long lasting legacy that Mr. Ailey, Judith Jamison and now Robert Battle continue to carry on from generation to generation.” Don’t miss this great show.
