I really hope she can produce something better than "Nightspot".
Well, now Twyla Tharp is making three new works for the September rep show (alongside their production of her Nine Sinatra Songs) -- that's going to be a pretty intense experience...

Where is the September rep show? Last October there was a celebration of her work at the Cal Performances in Berkley. Miami City Ballet and ABT along with others performed her work. I wonder if this is the same type of thing?

According to Boal (during a post-show Q&A session) she originally was hoping to work with Noelani Pantastico and Casey Herd, before they announced their departures.

In spite of the changes, Tharp's going to be tickled pink with the likes of Postlewaite, Korbes (she's got to be healed by then!), Wevers, and Rausch (my pick for a future all stars berth), not to mention Orza (Seth), Rachel Foster, and the 2 pros who eat Tharp's stuff like hot dogs on the 4th of July: Imler and Eames. I'll throw in a couple of sleepers too.......Kari Brunson and Jordan Pacitti.
According to Boal (during a post-show Q&A session) she originally was hoping to work with.......
........and there are plenty of others where those came from
[later edit]......and I will be interested to see if Tharp pegs Laura Gilbreath. Laura sort of "showed up" this past season in places you might not ordinarily expect her, and she delivered!
