  1. I agree largely with what nanushka and vipa said. I'm not a New Yorker so the pandemic has afforded me the opportunity to see more of NYCB's current crop of dancers than I ever could under normal circumstances and I'm intensely grateful for that, but if I were a subscriber, this movie would only make me hungrier for the real thing onstage. Did not care for Bouder in Duo Concertant. Tiler Peck was great, but that has been true every time I have seen her.
  2. And not out..... The allegations. The book is still available on Amazon and around the web and I assume at local libraries, unless they pull their copies. If you're interested in Roth you should read it and probably have a copy around for reference. I agree with most of what is written by Laura Marsh in The New Republic here. This review was written before the allegations surfaced and stood out from the encomiums the book was getting in other quarters.
  3. Very sorry to hear this. My condolences to his friends and family. Lovely post, sandik.
