The world renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre is performing in
I had the opportunity to see the company perform only once before, when I was living in
Anyway, AIDG asks me if I’m a dancer and of course I can only reply “I try”. So, then he asks me if I’m coming to the show and I have to confess that I’m not, ‘cause it’s sold out. SO THEN HE OFFERS ME TWO FREE TICKETS… IN PRODUCTION ROW! I’m pretty sure by this point was a quivering mess of meltiness. I sent him a bouquet of flowers to say ‘thanks’. The show was the following night and it was spectacular. The theatre was so small, the dancing so powerful, and the costumes so beautiful.
Incidentally, the German speaking counter lady had figured out, mostly from my freaking out, that somehow this guy was famous. She asked my friend who he was, since she clearly didn’t recognize him and was worried she was missing something. John said, “Some dance person. I don’t know. I guess he’s popular in
I can’t wait to see the show. Tonight, the company will be performing “Night Creature”, “Solo”, “Love Stories”, and “Revelations”. Each of the three shows they’re doing while they’re here will include “Revelations” and then a collection of other pieces from their repertory. I think Susanna is going to more than one show so she can see more of the pieces.
Time to get ready for the show!
Talk to you later,
