Malcolm McDowell to narrate Wedding Bouquet

4 posts in this topic

Ari posted this on Links, but I thought it might spark discussion.

When the Joffrey Ballet performs Ashton's A Wedding Bouquet this winter, the narrator will be Malcolm McDowell.

I was a McDowell fan when I was in college -- Clockwork Orange, and a few other movies whose titles I now forget! I think this could be very, very interesting -- there was an edge to McDowell (at least in his screen persona) which could be perfect for reading Stein, and give a different coloration to the ballet.

I'd count this as a coup -- wish I could see it.

Well, Alexandra, the Joffrey will be performing at Lincoln Center during the Ashton Festival. I don't know what they're bringing, but we can always keep our fingers crossed.

Alexandra, in a recent (1-2 years ago) tv interview, McDowell seemed to reveal an edgy private persona, as well, though at this point with smoothed rough spots and slight patina that come with maturity.
