Make your way to the Cotton Mouth Club speakeasy at the Governors State University Performing Arts Center March 27, for a spectacular music and dance entertainment, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!
The stage at Governors State University’s Performing Arts Center will be transformed into the Cotton Mouth Club speakeasy, where you can sit back and enjoy the music of OutKast and Michael Jackson, and the outstanding dance group Chicago Dance Crash! It’s a crazy fusion of prohibition era Chicago and the 1980s, featuring hip hop, ballet, jazz, swing, break dance and contemporary dance. (Rated PG)
Chicago Dance Crash, from the Dance Center of Chicago’s Columbia College, most noted for full evening dance-theatre works, works at such a high level of energy you will be astounded and amazed!
“Crash brings a compelling mixture of ballet, break dancing, hip hop, martial arts and dangerous acrobatics into seamless alignment.” The Chicago Tribune
OutKast, formed in 1992 in Georgia, and consisting of the duo of Andre Benjamin Antwan Martin is a funk, soul, electronic music, spoken word poetry band. “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below,” their 2004 double album, won the only Grammy Award for hip hop music.
If we need to explain Michael Jackson, you are from a distant planet!
