Don Redlich's signature piece, continuously performed since 1959.
Various dance styles are incorporated into the choreography including
tap, jazz, gymnastics and the Hanya Holm technique. The hero is an
entertaining version of a vaudevillian country hick. Needs a dancer
with a feeling for character work, an expansive personality and the
ability to perform quick, complex rhythms.
