"The Car Man." Because it's based on "Carmen." Get it?

A new London dance production: "'The Car Man' is to 'Carmen' not quite what 'West Side Story' was to 'Romeo and Juliet.'" OK. So is it better than Carmen Jones? A "lot of beer is drunk, there's a lot of sex and fighting. Bourne is good at translating all of that into thrilling dance that owes much to choreographers Jerome Robbins and Twyla Tharp, while it remains somehow entirely his own." I'm interested.

ADDED: "The Car Man" video clip. One part "So You Think You Can Dance," two parts "Go Greased Lightning."
