No problem there, carbro. I'm just happy ABT Men will be shown next week on OPB. Right after the special on the mating habits of banana slugs. (The state bird of Oregon)

So, WTTW-Chicago has finally come around. Hubby saw the program manager recently and asked, "What gives?" The PM apparently rolled his eyes (in a "yeah, we messed up and boy, did we hear about it" kind of expression) and said that due to numerous complaints -- from the Joffrey, among others -- they would be running "Men of the ABT" in April.

Ballet triumphs over all!

Thanks, BW. We already have tickets. I might have missed that preview, which is very informative.

Hope you'll give us a full review of your own, Treefrog, and perhaps the mini Treefrogs will chime in too.

I'll try.

In light of recent discussions elsewhere on the board about kids at the ballet, I'd like opinions on whether this program is suitable for an 11 1/2 year old. I have my doubts.
