The show will highlight their over three decades of genuine romance and top-notch performances together from Broadway, ballet and around the world.
“CONTACT!” will be a celebration of song and dance with the amazing duo’s 30 years of love from the start, with each other and with the art of musical dance theatre. Jackson’s and Kessler’s love ignited an international career together spanning from Broadway to the Las Vegas Strip, to theatres and opera houses worldwide. They were also the starring song and dance team in “The Great Radio City Music Hall Spectacular,” touring in over 80 U.S. cities and playing an extended run at the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas.
M&M’s specials guests from Broadway and the Las Vegas Strip will also perform to share a fun evening of inspiring and heartfelt live entertainment in this 90-minute musical journey showcasing classics from the Great American Songbook, pop and country hits, superb dancing, along with a band of great musicians from Broadway-Las Vegas and music direction led by composer Keith Thompson, co-writer of “Idaho!”, co-founder and host of the Composers Showcase and musical conductor of “Jersey Boys.” Songs will also include originals composed by Kessler and Thompson.
Native New Yorkers, M&M’s careers have included producing, directing, writing, choreographing and performing internationally and a lifetime living, working, dancing, singing, and laughing together. The couple have resided in Las Vegas for 11 years, and also proudly created the nonprofit, M&M American Dance Theatre Works, dedicated to promoting educational and cultural enrichment through exposure, mentorship and involvement in musical dance theatre.
