This undated handout photo provided by The Kennedy Center shows the Little Dancer Company visit to the "Little Dancer Aged Fourteen" sculpture by Edgar Degas, at the National Gallery of in Art in Washington. “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen,” a famous sculpture by Edgar Degas that can be seen in museums around the world, is coming to life in a new musical debuting on the Kennedy Center stage in Washington. The new $7 million production opening for previews Saturday is the brainchild of playwright and lyricist Lynn Ahrens, composer Stephen Flaherty and director and choreographer Susan Stroman. The show was born out of a love of dance and their shared interest in one of the most important sculptures at the National Gallery of Art that depicts a defiant 14-year-old dancer who posed for Degas.
