Would a RAVE review make you see a ballet?

Thanks, Hans. I can't resist saying that the notion that there might be one or two likeminded souls reading you is a very good reason to praise only that which you really think is good!

I'm with you on Alexandra, Hans. It does make a huge difference who the critic is and how they write.
P.S. I like your reasoning Alexandra about writing about what you really do like.

Most reliable of all is my personal cadre of spies B) who sometimes see a new production before I do. :gossip:

but still -- something that really will snag me is if what the reporter says is interesting -- whether or not I think I'll agree withthem, if it gets the writer actually interested -- you can tell from the tone-- in something that seems to come from the dancing itself, that will intrigue me and make me want to go.....
I wish I'd seen Double Feature, for example, from hte things people said about tom Gold and Kyra Nichols and so on, the kind of opportunities it gave for dancers to get their teeth into something they don't normally get to do just made me want to see it for myself -- I hated Contact (thought it was nasty) but loved Oklahoma and just wanted to go and see if I'd have felt the same way....
