Choreographer Twyla Tharp redeemed the Broadway jukebox musical with "Movin' Out," a narrative ballet set to songs by Billy Joel. Her latest work, "Rabbit and Rogue," which just concluded a series of performances at the American Ballet Theater, features an original score by composer Danny Elfman. She joins us to talk about the use of music in her work, and about her favorite dance scores.

Would Twyla consider working with more contemporary rockers such as Radiohead or the Cure on any projects? Are there any contemporary rock bands that interest her? I'd be really interested in seeing what she could do with their music.

I'm still waiting for Danny Elfman to finally bring to light his "Little Monsters" project
