Helen Highwaters has defected to America three times and been promptly returned on each occasion—for “artistic reasons.” Recently discovered en omelette at the Easter Egg Hunt in Washington, DC, she was hired by the Trock­adero, where her inexplicable rise to stardom answers the musical question: Who put the bop in the bop-shibop shibop?

The Legupski Brothers—Dmitri, Marat, Sergey, Timur, and Vladimir—are not really brothers, nor are their names really Dmitri, Marat, Sergey, Timur, or Vladimir, nor are they real Russians, nor can they tell the difference between a pirouette and a jeté…but…well…they do move about rather nicely…and…they fit into the costumes.
