Don Redlich's signature piece, continuously performed since 1959. Various dance styles are incorporated into the choreography including tap, jazz, gymnastics and the Hanya Holm technique. The hero is an entertaining version of a vaudevillian country hick. Needs a dancer with a feeling for character work, an expansive personality and the ability to perform quick, complex rhythms.
