and suddenly realizes that it is not really possible to get 2 feet from Juliet's face.

It wouldn't be the first time advertising painted a rosier picture than the reality (think Viagra :blink:). Your software engineer likely has run into that marketing technique before and would accept it as SOP :pinch:.

This is one of the scenes that rings to the back of the theater. I don't think anyone will be disappointed :pinch: (And Boal confirmed that Korbes is one of the Juliets this year, after having to pull out of the first run with an injury.)

Fraud is a crime only when the deception involved is intentional.

Bad choreography -- praised to the skies in the advertising - may be deceptive, but that is rarely intentional.

The sad thing about bad choreography is that those who produce it actually think it's good. :wink:

The new site has such a clean, modern design to it. I'm especially happy with the simple-to-read drop down menus, since navigating the old site involved a bit more trial and error. It's also nice that, along with the design, all the company bios are current. I noticed that Ben Griffiths was listed as a soloist...is that new? Probably my least favorite part is the new logo. Yes, it's clever, but I miss the simple/elegant black and white of the previous one. It was a logo that you could see even from a distance and say "Pacific Northwest Ballet." It was definitive. This new one will take some time getting used to; it doesn't stand out as much and it doesn't conjure up the image of "PNB."
