  1. More singing Streep. This performance is from very early in Streep's career. Alice at the Palace by Elizabeth Swados: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=90Y15Crljk4
  2. I think we might see an increase in ABT dancers coming into the Washington Ballet as guest artists. Last season we had Xiomara Reyes in Sleepy Hollow and a few years ago David Hallberg guested in La Sylphide.
  3. We are in total agreement. :-)
  4. Peck is one of my favorite ballerinas of those currently dancing. I think there's an aura of "girl next door," America's Sweetheart, realness that shines through everything she does. She's one of those dancers who makes the phenomenal things she does seem normal.
  5. You're welcome, Natalia. Have a good time!

  7. For a period of time before Webre, founder Mary Day was artistic director and Choo San Goh was resident choreographer. Day was most well known as a teacher. Goh's choreography was widely admired. However, neither Day nor Goh had the flashy personality or PR savy that Webre has.

    From the mid-1970's. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f7/09/6e/f7096ef750cb3022ecf12a0edcfd2e78.jpg Anybody remember seeing this?
  11. New discount offer for $29 Orchestra tickets. If time, funds, and Mother Natue allow. http://m.kennedy-center.org/home/Performance/55532
  12. This is from a 2009 article about SAB by Alastair Macauley, http://mobile.nytimes.com/2009/05/24/arts/dance/24maca.html?referer= I know that the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet shows up in many NYCB dancers' bios as an early training ground. Getting back to ABT JKO I think that Cynthia Harvey's appointment is very exciting news.
  13. At this point the original poster must wish that he'd written something along the lines of "The Eagles played as though they weren't wearing their padding and helmets."
  14. On a tangent: The thing that drives me nuts about football is the amount of time spent on time out, half time, the constant stop and start of getting from one play to the next. I hate watching the players standing around, it makes me feel like nothing is happening.
  15. I wonder if there weren't any words for outdated technology that they could have replaced instead of the flora and fauna. Where does Superman change his clothes these days?

  18. Happy Turkey Day, everybody! This offer for tomorrow just came in:
  19. You're right, Dirac. They were showing "Line" and "Truth" one after the other, including vintage commercials. :-)
  20. I caught BUZZR recently during my insomniac hours. They were showing To Tell the Truth complete with Kitty Carlisle, Arlene Francis and Bennett Cerf.
  21. Didn't she marry Herbert Ross after Nora Kaye died (another ABT connection)?
  22. The time change for performances this season is an attempt to control the flow of traffic during the garage phase of the construction for the KenCen expansion project. The South entrances to the garage will be closed for an extended period. Curtain times are 7:00 for the Opera House, 7:30 for the Eisenhower, and 8:00 for the Concert Hall.
