This article on Mike Eidson and the current health of the company is worth reading. I think there are some interesting issues to discuss as well. It's a pretty clear picture of the choices (and compromises) one company made to get on sound financial footing.

What do people think?

I'm so glad you posted this article. I read it in the paper this morning, and felt that it really accutately portrayed what has been going on in the company. The money problems were really bad at some times, to the point where Villela was asked to let 14 dancers go one year. That was nearly 1/3 of the company at that time. But somehow things were re-worked, MCB managed to stick together and is really starting to go uphill again. Mike Eidson has done so much for and with the company it's amazing. He is so dedicated to the company as well as each individual dancer. Personally I think he has saved MCB in more ways than one.
