In a rarely successful juxtaposition of classical music and comedy, the dynamic duo of Aleksey Igudesman and Richard Hyung-ki Joo present their newest show And Now Mozart. But this ain't your average night at the symphony—an Igudesman and Joo show is full of unexpected antics, as teased by the show's description: "For those who eat, pray, and love Mozart, don’t care at all for Mozart, or never even heard of Mozart, this show promises that it will contain absolutely NO Mozart! But that’s giving away way too much!" So what exactly can audiences expect from And Now Mozart? Igudesman on the violin, Joo on the piano, flamboyantly hilarious showmanship and bantering, and musicianship worthy of the greatest music halls. If Mozart's rolling in his grave, we're sure it's with laughter.
