    Account Suspended -- Apologies

    As usual when there's a snafu like this, I tend to think that it's somehow my fault, so I was glad to see that the site is back in businesss.

    Edward Bigelow

    Thanks for the "hi," dirac. Although I'd heard and read much about "dear Eddie Bigelow," as Suzanne calls him in the "Elusive Muse" film, I didn't meet him until relatively recent times. We were seated at the same table on opening night of Suzanne's revival of Balanchine's Don Quixote by her company. It was a thrilling evening. I wish I had an appropriately thrilling anecdote about it, but all I can muster is the memory of a couple of shy old guys being polite to each other and saying nice things about Suzanne. I, for one, did not calm down for days.

    Edward Bigelow

    Such a shocking end to a wonderful life. May he be reunited with all the great figures in NYCB history, starting with Lincoln and Mister B. God rest their souls.
  5. The Suzanne Farrell Ballet will be appearing at the Joyce Theater this fall.

    Miriam Pellman

    It was always a great pleasure to see Miriam at a performance. She made you feel that you'd come to the right place. I'll miss her.

    "Apollo's Angels" by Jennifer Homans

    As enjoyable as are Toni Bentley's reviews of the dance books of others, even more enjoble is a dance book by Toni Bentley. I look forward to her book on "Serenade."
  8. What a pleasant surprise! Thanks, Mme. Hermine.

    A package from "Charlie Farrell":

    Thanks for your kind words, BTers.
  10. I am slightly acquainted with Suzanne's poodle Charlie, although many other people know him better. So I was delighted with the package I received from him today. I have been somewhat under the weather recently and Charlie obviously meant this to cheer me up. It has had the desired effect. So thanks, Charlie, for the goodies from "Charlie's Chocolate Factory," and thanks to the Holowchuks with whom Charlie stays when his mistress is away. They took care of the mailing details. And thanks, now and forever, to Suzanne.

    O'Neal's restaurant

    I'm glad the mural has been rescued yet again, but sad that the last incarnation of the restaurant has now disappeared. To me, O'Neals'(I loved their use of apostrophes)was synonomous with Lincoln Center. I already miss it.

    Farewell Performances and Criticism

    I thought Macauley's review was excellent -- beautifully done. What's wrong with mentioning her hair? Her hair was glorious, as is this thoughtful, balanced, beautiful review.
  13. I can't be objective about this. I'll always be grateful to Michael Kaiser for providing an artistic home for Suzanne Farrell.

    It's hard to reconcile the opinions expressed on this thread so far and I'm certainly not going to try. All I'll say is that I was at the Monday night Swan Lake and my opinion coincides with that of chiapuris.
