Tom Phillips reviews the production for danceviewtimes.


The BAM crowd mostly came to see Baryshnikov, and they were not disappointed. He was a delight to behold, whether dying slow-motion, shuffling sideways moving from just the ankles down, or up on his tiptoes in a flamenco dance using the old woman's dentures as a castanet. But many who may have come to see a play walked out early, after an hour of sight-gags and out-of-context nonsense convinced them that this wasn't going to add up to much.....



Has anyone else seen it?

Alas, not me -- I'm depending on the reviews and comments from friends...
