It takes a diva.

[NY] With a time-tripping vision of Ruth St. Denis in mind, producer-writer Fran Kirmser turned to Dalia Carella. Critics had crowned Carella the latter-day Miss Ruth, noting her skilled, glamorous interpretations of "ethnic" dancing. The charismatic performer shared Kirmser's drive to bring St. Denis back into the public eye. Now Kirmser's In Search of A Goddess (co-written with director Andrew Frank) comes to The Duke on 42nd Street, June 10-20, with Carella's contemporary takes on St. Denis' famed solos Kwan Yin (1919), Egypta (1910), and more, with the aid of three actors playing the young Ruth, a spirited sidekick, and a mystic, this piece promises to be a colorful evocation of everything from the Coney Island boardwalk to the Ouled Nail dancers of Algeria.
