I thought Daniel was amazing tonight and look forward to seeing his portrayal of the Prodigal Son develop over the years. He did such a great job. He is so talented and he looked so happy when taking his bows! Congrats to Daniel.

I'm sorry I couldn't make it today but can't wait to hear more about the performance and blogger meet up!


Sounds like a wonderful afternoon, I'm sorry I missed it.


Sophie & Susan: I hope you can get to the second Ulbricht/Reichlen PRODIGAL on Tuesday...it's well worth the trip!


I am still in post-Prodigal glow.

I am so proud/impressed/thrilled for Daniel. His premiere was unbelievable. The height of his jumps and the depth of his interpretation of the piece and his musicality were all spot on and it was lovely to see such a young dancer tackle the young role (as you said as well!). Teresa R did her best with a very difficult role, but I think she still needs some time to settle into the intricacies of it. For a first shot out of the gate, this was a WONDERFUL portrayal and I clapped until my hands hurt.

The rest of the performance was tremendous as well... LOVED Fall and Spring particularly and was a bit heartbroken that this will be the last time I see Nikoaj until his retirement program. Another dancer going out in style, grace and tremendous strength.

It was also nice to meet some of the other bloggers, just sorry I had to run off so quickly!

I wish I didn't have work to do tomorrow night because I would absolutely revisit yesterday's program in a heartbeat!


Sarah, yes I remember you showed me your 'injured palms' from all that clapping. I loved the enthusiasm that Daniel & Tess created in the house.

I wasn't planning to, but have now decided that I have to see it again on Tuesday.


I'm so jealous that you'll get to return tomorrow night!

I just posted a blog entry about Daniel's triumph. Maybe someday he'll read it!



Sarah! You never told me you had a blog! You are now linked to Oberon's Grove, in the right-hand column.


That was a truly extraordinary debut by Danny Ulbrict. I have never found PRODIGAL SON more powerful or more moving than it was yesterday. Kudos to Tess Reichlen as well for her outstanding debut as the Siren. I can understand why you would want to see it again tomorrow evening. If I did not already have theater tickets for tomorrow, I would do likewise.

The entire program was an absolute joy. Megan and Nikolai performed beautifully in Square Dance and Four Seasons was the perfect finale to the afternoon - first-rate debuts by Rebecca Krohn and Amar Ramasar in Summer, a smooth as cream performance by Sara in Spring and the usual dazzling display by Ashley in Fall. What a day - so many memories to carry over!
