« TAKE Dance at the Miller Theatre | Main | AIDS WALK NY 2008 »



I finally posted my review of this program (including the stuff you missed pre-AIDS walk) and a review of Double Feature which I actually wound up going to on Sunday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed!http://allwillknow.blogspot.com/2008/05/new-york-city-ballet-review-robbins.html


I'll be there on Friday and also Saturday and Sunday matinees...fingers crossed for JT...


Sarah, I have seen Double Feature several times now and the amazing thing is that I find myself enjoying it more and more every time I see it. The performances on Sunday were exceptionally good, especially the star turns of Damian, Ashley and Tom. What Susan Stroman has created here is quite remarkable and it does pull in a new audience that might not be ready for some of the more traditional ballets in the repertory. I know that Stroman is very much in demand on Broadway and has many other commitments, but the company really should try to persuade her to do another piece for them. I had heard a rumor a while back that she might be choreographing a new ballet to the music of Cole Porter for NYCB but nothing seems to have come of that.


Cole Porter is such a brilliant songwriter...I'd go just for the songs!
