Savion Glover, the star and Tony-winning choreographer of the Broadway smash Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, will be taking a vacation from the show from Jan.10 to 21.
Spokesperson Carol Fineman confirmed the vacation dates, adding that Glover hasn't missed a single performance of the physically demanding tap dance revue, which has brought the dancer wide acclaim and a Tony Award for choreography. Faced with the unenviable task of filling Glover's tap shoes will be fellow cast member Baakari Wilder. People holding tickets to performances coinciding with the star's vacation will be able to obtain a refund.
Noise/Funk was originally produced at the Joseph Papp Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival in the autumn of 1995, moving uptown to Broadway's Ambassador Theatre in April 1996, where enthusiastic word of mouth has elevated the show to sellout status.
