  1. There's a wonderful old segment where Marilyn Horne does a version of "C is for Cookie" in an Aida inspired setting. Sorry I'm at work and don't have time to find the link, but I know it's on YouTube.
  2. There was a documentary of Jock Soto that showed up on PBS a few years ago. It looked at his background, professional and peronal lives. I'm drawing a blank on the name. He was another openly gay dancer who was perceived as "masculine" and treasured by his partners.
  3. I saw Shen Yun last Nov. There were about 10 short selections for each of two acts that were too repetitive for my taste. There was also a pair of MCs who introduced each piece with corny patter. There were some lovely moments. I'm glad I saw it, but I didn't have to buy my ticket, and I have no desire to see it again. The company is related to the Falun Gong movement.
  4. The Homecoming with Patricia Neal and all those red-headed Walton children. And speaking of The Shop Around the Corner . . .
  5. Here's the Dance Magazine obituary, http://dancemagazine.com/issues/October-2011/Marnee-Morris-19462011
  6. Thank you, Bart and Natalia. I guess that ever since I discovered Kirstein on the library shelf (when you're first allowed access to the adult books) and read everything there before moving on to anything else, I've conflated the collected works into one big glorious multi-volume book in my head. Silly me.
  7. Have Homans and her reviewers and interviewers completely ignored Lincoln Kirstein's writings (i.e. Four Centuries of Ballet: Fifty Masterworks or Movement and Metaphor)?
