Just tonight and the holidays are behind us. I did not see any companies “Nutcracker” this year. Went to visit the kids and they wanted a wishlist, so I put down some of the old dance films I’d enjoyed. They gave me “White Nights”, with Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines plus Robert Altman’s “The Company”.
That got me thinking about some more of them like “Flashdance” which I’ve seen mercilessly parodied on Youtube. Then there’s “Turning Point”, “Singing in the Rain”, “West Side Story”, “The Red Shoes”, and the classic Fred Astaire’s “Holiday Hotel”.
So Wednesday it’s back to the drawing table, ’til next time.
