Thanks for the info. I knew that Desmond had been on Broadway and in film. I also knew that Makarova had won a Tony and an Olivier Award for her work in musical theater. Didn't know about the others.
I assumed there was still quite a bit of snobbery existing in the world of classical dance that implies that when ballet people do Broadway, they are slumming.
When I think of how many in the the ballet establishment may view other dance forms, I'm reminded of how the Hollywood movie industry used to look down on the Hollywood TV industry as an inferior art form.
Or how Ethel Barrymore initially referred to theater people doing films as "prostituting" oneself.
Funny how larger, more mainstream audiences and great goo-gobs of filthy Hollywood lucre can make wh---s of just about anyone.
