I do love an afternoon of ballet. Sandwiched in between Ballanchine SymphonicConcertante which was a half hour of twirling white tutus and Robbins Fancy Free was the premiere of Jessica Lang’s Garden Blue. Last week I was to a works and process where JL and her artistic Partner […]
What a walk. Today we have about 16,500 steps. The Connelly is tucked on 4th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B. Another little stage that you would never know is here. It’s possible that the bleachers (with real chairs) that we sat on fold up and reveal […]
