About the Show

A 7-year-old falls in love with dance at her first recital. Forty years later, she works every day to stay in the game. At 70 she keeps moving.

The Running Show documents the life of a dancer through movement, interviews, and stories. The show features a large cast of local performers, including dance students from Boston Conservatory at Berklee. The show gives the audience an unprecedented look into the life of a dancer as a new kind of sports hero that keeps moving against all odds. 

Celebrity Series audiences have enjoyed Monica Bill Barnes & Company via their Happy Hour performances at District Hall in the Seaport in 2019 and the company's show with public radio host Ira Glass in 2015. Barnes and her creative partner Robbie Saenz de Viteri are artists who mix the whimsical and the poignant to unique effect.
