Broadway visionaries meet ballet royalty. Five-time Tony Award®-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact), Tony Award®-winning authors Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once On This Island), and acclaimed New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck invite you backstage into 19th-century Paris, where glittering opulence hobnobbed with underworld dangers. In this era of groundbreaking artistry, a girl named Marie (Peck) dreams of being the next star of the ballet. Despite the odds of her hard-scrabble life, she scrimps, saves and steals in pursuit of her ambitions. But when fate leads her to the studio of Impressionist Edgar Degas, she unknowingly steps into immortality – becoming the inspiration for his most famous sculpture ever: Little Dancer. Marie is a sumptuous masterpiece bound for the world stage.
