On Friday I attended this very special performance at the Joyce Theatre, with all proceeds going to the NY Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund. Members of neighborhood Engine Company 3, Battalion 7, Ladder 12 and the 10th Police Precinct were in attendance and received a long standing ovation.
Rather than review this performance, I want to say how wonderful it was just being there. The evening began with the great Peggy Lyman performing Graham's LAMENTATION and ended with the final section of Taylor's ESPLANADE. In between were duets and solos, plus generous excerpts from Limon's THERE IS A TIME and Feld's PACIFIC DANCES. I liked that there was a mixture of the sad with the joyful and hopeful.
'Special' performances can end up being empty experiences. Not this one.
