The characterizations in "The Merry Widow" gave a number of PNB dancers the chance to stretch themselves dramatically when the company produced it. I remember especially that Kari Brunson made a huge splash as the Loud American Tourist and especially character dancer Uko Gorter's gracious portrayal of the Baron. He was like a male Marshallin.
