A feature on Doug Fitch and Edouard Getaz of Giants Are Small by Allan Kozinn in The New York Times.
What it evolved from was “The Unspoken Side of Show Business,” a series Giants Are Small created to help the New York Philharmonic promote “A Dancer’s Dream.” In that series, which is more humorous than overtly promotional, Wigglesworth posed as a casting director who promised to find a bankable star to play the opera’s magician.
Sara Mearns, the dancer who starred in “Dream,” appeared in the series. So did Alan Gilbert, the Philharmonic’s conductor and music director. In the final episode, shown shortly after Mr. Gilbert halted a concert because of a ringing cellphone in the audience, Wigglesworth telephones the conductor during a concert. Mr. Gilbert continues conducting as he takes the call.
