Ari posted a link to an article in the Guardian, "Troubled Royal Ballet eyes US director." In the first sentence, Kevin McKenzie is referred to as "the unsettled artistic director (sic) of the American Ballet Theatre." Later in the piece, it's stated "American Ballet Theatre has undergone huge turmoil, with talk that its new patron and chairman Lewis S. Ranieri railroaded McKenzie into a dance tribute to the Beatle George Harrison."

I'd like to know if there's anyone out there who thinks McKenzie's position at ABT is "unsettled." It was news to me.

It was news to me, too, Farrell Fan. Is this speculation, assuming that any artistic director feels "unsettled" when there have been as many changes as at ABT?

Yeah, I was interested in that comment too.

Does that person know something we don't or are they just blatantly speculating. Mr. McKenzie seems to have lasted pretty well in this day of flash in the pan ADs.

Maybe they mean he's uncolonized, like he doesn't have lice or fleas or something. Kevin was always such a cleanly boy.;)
