Finally got to see the show. Cool and windy at Rockefeller Center but the show went on.
<span style="text-decoration:underline">On The Town</span>. Not quite Jerome Robbins but very good interpretation of the music. Doug Webster was the choreographer and he did a nice job. I'd like to see this in SOI.
<em>The Arc of a Circle</em>. This was choreographed and skated to by Beth Waronoff. Rgirl. Doe the name ring a bell? She skated tentatively and nicely to J.S Bach music. the choroegraphy was definitely based on modern dance. It just wasn't arena type setting.
<span style="text-decoration:underline">Mercy. </span> Lucinda Ruhe doing her Robin Cousins number looking like the Oscar Statuette. Incredible as usual. There are so many variations to any given spin that it is mind boggling. She did do a Bielman and it is the first time I saw it as an artistic move. There was no wrestling match with the arms to grab her skate. She did it all in one movement.
<em>Through a Glass Darkly</em> A Tribute to John Curry choreographed by Katherine Healy who also danced in it. I've seen this work before and it is looking better. It seems to have too many ballet movements which do not lend themselves to the ice. However, it was skated well by Kevin Curtis as 'John'; Breanne Scully as 'Figure Skating'; and Katherine as 'Dance". Healy, imo, was too concerned about how it was being performed which took away from her part. Scully did quite well and Curtis was fine but, of course, not John.
Check this company out if they come to your neck of the woods.
