Aired on Tuesday, May 9th.

One of the hottest choreographers working in the U.S. today, Weber is nominated for two Tony Awards for the 2022-2023 Broadway season -- for "& Juliet" and "KPOP" (two shows that opened less than a week apart).

Our guest on ST is Jennifer Weber, the Tony Award-nominated, Olivier Award-nominated, and Emmy Award-winning choreographer who's based in both New York City and Los Angeles. Her piece titled "While You Were Gone" -- the first-ever hip-hop ballet to be performed by Tulsa Ballet -- will be one of three exciting, superstar-choreographed works on the program when Tulsa Ballet closes its current season with "Signature Series." This popular series will be staged at TU's Lorton Performance Center from May 11th through the 14th; more information, including how to get tickets, is here.
