Tony-Award nominee John Tartaglia has certainly spread his creative wings. He starred in the acclaimed musical Avenue Q, appeared on Broadway in Shrek The Musical and in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and created and starred in The Playhouse Disney series ''Johnny and the Sprites.'' Now, as if creative wings weren't enough, he has grown some creative gills as well, with the production of John Tartaglia's ImaginOcean.
A one-of-a-kind live black-light puppet show, John Tartaglia's ImaginOcean is a magical undersea adventure for kids of all ages. Tank, Bubbles and Dorsel are three best friends who just happen to be fish, and they're about to set out on a remarkable journey of discovery. And it all starts with a treasure map. As they swim off in search of clues, they'll sing, they'll dance, and they'll make new friends, including everyone in the audience. Ultimately they discover the greatest treasure of all: friendship. Jam-packed with music ranging from swing to R&B to Big Band, John Tartaglia's ImaginOcean is a blast from the first big splash to the last wave goodbye.
