Balanchine's first ballet created in America originated as a lesson in stage technique, using unexpected events from rehearsals as the basis for the choreography. "When one student fell, he incorporated it. Another day, a student arrived late, and this too became part of the ballet." (The George Balanchine Trust)

Joffrey Premiere


Of Mice and Men

Choreography and Direction: (c) Cathy Marston | Original Score: Thomas Newman

Scenario by Cathy Marston and Edward Kemp

Hope abounds for George Milton and Lennie Small, two drifters looking for work on the golden farms of Depression-era California. When tragedy strikes, George and Lennie face difficult choices that test the nature of their relationship. Marston goes from page-to-stage with Steinbeck's tender tale of friendship and sacrifice, with an original score by Academy Award®-nominated composer Thomas Newman.
