Double Your Pleasure 

Fans of both song and dance will like the Beck's latest offering.

You’ve got a few more days to check out Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Song and Dance at the Beck Center. The Tony-nominated musical -- a collaboration between the performing arts center and Verb Ballets -- features a pair of stories that have only a tenuous thematic connection. The first act is essentially a one-woman show about a young Brit who moves to New York. The songs chart her ups and downs in both love and career. The second part spotlights a ballet called Variations, which tells the story of one of her boyfriends. The entire production is co-directed by the venue’s respective artistic directors -- Beck’s Scott Spence and Verb’s Hernando Cortez, who turn the potentially disjointed piece into a fluid, flawless work.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: March 16. Continues through April 7
