I was only trying to make Charlotte more like I would have liked it to be and encourage others to do the same however they saw fit. Of course, by getting out there I was promoting my own ideas, as well as those who participated, but I was also trying to open a door for others to feel fearless about doing that themselves. I certainly never intended to come off as some high and mighty know-it-all and never intended any cultural appropriation in my costume and painting ideas, though they were inspired in part by the Native American cultures of which my Great Grandfather was a member. I hate that some took it this way, but ultimately, what's done is done and I have no desire to look back with regrets. I miss Charlotte and hope that it is treating everyone well, including the critics in these comments. All the best to all of you.
And not only are these ladies doing it, they are doing it WELL. Kudos to you all, friends!

How could one put such power into words? To have seven teenagers perform a musical that could evoke so much emotion in such a short time is just incredible. Amy's writing, the songs, the performance were all amazing, all the while promoting an awareness of so many issues and pressures young people face. Definitely a must see for teens and adults alike.
I heard all great reviews. such awareness is wonderful for the public.
The show touched my heart in so many ways. Amazing performers and an outstanding production by Amy Steinberg! Well done!! A must see!!!
This show is enlightening, raw, funny, and brings so much awareness to a topic that needs more public attention.
I took my almost 14-year-old with me and she really liked it...and she does not like much!! :)..Seriously, I highly recommend taking your adolescent and his or her friends to view this with you!! It will leave you hopeful and experienced!!
I can't stress enough how important this show is. It tackles incredibly difficult subject matter in such a beautiful way. I sat in awe of the talent and bravery of the 7 kids. This should be seen by every single middle or high school student! The music will fill your soul. You will leave enlightened, challenged,touched by the experience. Treat yourself to art at its finest!
Fantastic show, I laughed, I cried (a lot!), I remembered my own painful teenage years and watched in amazement as these young actors demonstrated the struggles kids today face with such power and poignancy. Such an important show, with the potential to help so many realize they are not alone and there is help.
An absolutely amazing group of teens performing stunning music and telling heartbreaking, but very real stories. Come and be filled with "Hope", "Grace", and "Light".
I really loved this show! The combination of so many great talents made me feel like I was right there, just listening to these teens talk about so many deeply personal issues, the way teens only do with eachother. The whole thing brought me right back to high school, reminding me how tough it is at that age, and how important it is that we can form some kind of dialogue with teenagers. This musical does that! I just wish that it would've been around when I was in high school!
This show is beautifully done and breathtaking to watch. Amy and all the cast are crazy talented! Fantastic show!
Young adulthood is a harrowing journey. Breaking The Moon does a beautiful job echoing all the painful, confusing and intimate lessons we learn along the way.
Beautiful songs, wonderful acting, brave young people making important art. My sons and I were fortunate to have this extraordinary experience shared with us. We loved the show.
I was one of those in the sold out crowd and all I can say is, "Wow!!!" I didn't think that such a short musical would be so long on meaning. Bravo to Amy for her creative genius, for her artistic purity, and for her crazy crust of comedy!
Love it! I have been doing this around Charlotte, and the country for a few years now!
I was at the performance on Sunday and that young man changed characters so effectively and energetically... even with a script, that actor rose to the occasion splendidly. Someone get him to Blumenthal.
Wow. Just seeing this comment by HELLOWORLD. This is what you got from the article? You see a threat where there is no threat? You see difference where there's actually a deep human bond? It's always amazing to me how monumentally some people can miss the point of a piece of writing or work of art. Or maybe you *got* the point but you're just a common, everyday KKK sympathizer. Whatever the case, it's no surprise that you'd be so ashamed of your worldview that you hide behind the anonymity of a fake name... RIP Thornton Dial. You were a gift to this troubled world.
The company name is Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) not DTOH.
Thank you for the mention of the Charlotte Dance Festival too! Our 10th Anniversary Festival is March 18-20. Looking forward to all shows above!
