It’s quite an aggressive title, isn’t it? It reads like it ought to be on the cover of a Spider-Man comic. But rest assured that the beat in question is not some kind of supervillain from space. Nope, it’s the unmistakable groove of a troupe of dancers doing their choreographed thing up on stage.
Dubai is no stranger to such events, of course, with everything from Motown-inspired musical extravaganzas to artistic, ballet-esque hip-hop having graced the city’s stages. So what does You Can’t Stop The Beat! offer? The event will be divided into four sections, two per act, with the first two entitled ‘Wonderful West End’ and ‘Disney Magic’, followed by ‘Movie Musicals’ and ‘A Decade of Pop’. The actual decade they’ve chosen to focus on isn’t specified; we hope it’s not the 1940s, because George Formby sucks.
You Can’t Stop the Beat! is at First Group Theatre, May 8. Dhs75 for matinee performance, Dhs100 for evening performance; tickets from www.timeouttickets.com.
