This production of Company B will be the only one that CB does for a while...
as of today, who knows whether Gil Boggs will do it again in the near future or not.
I think that the Choreographers Showcase is one of the best performances CB has presented in a while; it's intense and full of energy; the talent that the dancers exhibit is mind boggling - I see them dance on a regular basis and they were doing things I had no idea they could do. There were rave reviews by Kyle MacMillan in the Denver Post and I haven't read what Marc Shulgold wrote... although when I asked, he said it was 'ok' after the first piece. I'm not going to write what I think of Marc or his opinion.
It is a fabulous way to spend a night out - more for adults than children methinks... but it's not inappropriate for them, only the wrong ilk for a very young person.
I wouldn't miss this one; in fact, I'm going to try to see it as many times as I can. ...and I love old blue eyes' music; I think it's the dancer in me. The Choreography is excellent in every piece.
Cinderella was lovely; it's the same Cinderella that Martin presented in 2000-2001 but it's so nice to see it again, Maria Mosina and Igor Vassine were as perfect as ever; and the rest of the cast was delightful as well.
...PS - there was a bronze statue commissioned a couple of years ago to be put into the Opera House; it was unveiled last month; it's a statue of Igor and Maria.... as far as technique, it's stunning, very well done... but as for my own personal taste, I don't like it at all... it's painted to look real... far too real, it looks like formaldehyde dancers... ewww.... too eerie.
