Last time I saw Hubbard Street Dance, I was sitting on the Harris Theatre stage looking out at the entire HSD company sitting in the seats waving at all of us on stage. What a unique experience! So I had some expectations for the HSD Winter Series, “An Evening of Crystal Pite”. HSD was back on stage; the performance was amazing – whether or not the dancers actually have joints was a subject for post-show discussion with my friend Sarah – but it just didn’t touch our hearts. 3 ½ Spotlights
Although the Winter Series has concluded, Hubbard Street Dance’s season will continue in 2018 with the Spring Series, “An Evening of Alejandro Cerrudo” March 23rd and 24th at the Auditorium Theatre. The Summer Series, June 7th through 10th, returns to the Harris Theater with a full evening-length work reimagining Ohad Naharin’s “Minus 16”. Hubbard Street Dance is a resident company at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park, 205 East Randolph, Chicago. By the way, parking is available in the Millenium Garage at a reduced rate with a ticket validated in the lobby. A much less expensive parking option ($15) is the garage on Randolph between Michigan and Wabash ( with a short walk through the Randolph Street Station to the Harris Theater).
