We have two amazing dancers coming with us, but it’s a show for two men. It’s an hour and a half of theater, comedy, dance, spoken word.

Then, it became a feeling of finding myself. own individuality and now the circle has closed where I realized how special it is to be able to share the stage with my brother “. While he has the comfort of being at home while traveling with his brother, this will be Val’s first tour as a married man, an aspect of the show that he admits has an impact on how much he can commit to. “It is a much more important consideration now than ever because there is now another human involved in my life whom I must consider.
