Visionary theatre director and designer, Thaddeus McWhinnie Phillips, reimagines his classic work about a Wyoming tap dancer that's stranded in Cuba. Lost Soles dives spectators into a surreal and playful adventure through rhythm tap, shadows, object theatre, souls and soles. This theatrically magical tribute to his own tap teachers (including his grandmother who danced with Donald O'Connor on the vaudeville circuit) and the resourcefulness of the Cuban people, has been called 'one of the few too-short hours in theatre' (VillageVoice.com), and 'funny, soulful, brilliant and sweet' (Westword.com). The New York Times hailed Phillips as 'a dazzling tap dancer'.
