WALL STREET WORKOUT
When fun-loving choreographer Monica Bill Barnes last put on a show for the Lower Manhattan Cultural Councils outdoor Sitelines series in 2005, she made a literal splash as 10 dancers in bright-colored costumes performed chorus-line routines inside a circular fountain to the beat of Diana Ross & the Supremes. This time out, Barnes brings her wit to the fast-paced world of Wall Street with Game Face, in which eight dancersdecked out in glittery costumes inspired by Broadway musicals and Las Vegas glamouract out the frenzy and high drama of the Stock Exchange. And while it may be hard to have a sense of humor in the Financial District these days, Barnes is sure to bring a smile to even the most cynical faces.
