This popular annual benefit for The School at Jacob's Pillow is a one-night-only event featuring Broadway guest stars performing alongside the students of the Jazz/Musical Theatre Dance Program culminating three weeks of intense study and preparation. Directed by Chet Walker of Fosse fame, A Jazz Happening features original choreography by faculty and live music by an onstage jazz band. Past performances have included song and dance numbers from Fosse, Chicago, Guys and Dolls, A Chorus Line, Company, and the work of seminal film and stage choreographer Jack Cole, who was also one Ted Shawn's dancers. This year's event will feature an all-new program and cast. Proceeds benefit The School at Jacob's Pillow.
