    • Synopsis
    • On a cold, Milwaukee night, high art meets pop culture as the music of William Shatner (Star Trek, Boston Legal) and Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), from their critically acclaimed album, "Has Been," is transformed into "Common People," a ballet from award winning choreographer Margo Sappington (Oh! Calcutta!, Billboards).
      "Gonzo Ballet" explores the genesis of this collaboration, as well as the musical journey that has taken William Shatner from the trippy covers of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Mr. Tamborine Man" in the 1960's, to his recent original work with Ben Folds, and finally, to the ballet.
