After a successful run in San Diego, The Times They Are A-Changin’ opened on Broadway.
The show presents an allegorical tale of a struggling circus, the oppressive ringmaster Captain Ahrab and the strained relationship with his son Coyote. Seven dancers portray the clowns and acrobats in the Captain’s circus. During previews, Tharp continued to streamline the plot, while retaining its fluid and surreal elements. The poetic qualities in Dylan’s music and lyrics are woven into a dream world in which the action takes place.
