In dance 

In an unprecedented collaboration combining war and dance, the Even Exchange Dance Theater of Raleigh (pictured) has joined up with area war veterans to create Veil (an anagram, the invitation points out, for "evil," "vile" and "live"), a piece that looks at the way our society deals with violence. Original live music and stories make this a one-of-a-kind dance theater experience, but because the content includes many different aspects of violence, parents are encouraged to consider its appropriateness for children. Performances run Nov. 3-18 at various Raleigh locations. Call 828-2377 for details.


How many Tonys can fit into one Best Bet? Let's see. In 1973, Bob Fosse became the first director to win an Oscar, Tony and Emmy award in one year for the film version of Cabaret, the Broadway musical Pippin, and the television special Liza with a Z. His work on Broadway, for which he won nine Tony awards, includes The Pajama Game, Sweet Charity, Chicago, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Now, the Tony Award-winning musical Fosse, a celebration of his work, comes to Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium, through Nov. 4. Besides showcasing well-known dance numbers like "Steam Heat," "Bye Bye Blackbird," "Rich Man's Frug," and "Dancin' Man," the show includes rarely seen dance numbers from Fosse's earlier works, and some from movies and television shows that have never been seen on stage before.
