I think that's true. The question will be whether she can convince the teams, who are not kids any more, to skate to them.
This year she wanted D&W to do Sinatra That didn't happen for example.
I expect both teams to have veto power over Marina.
Actually if they went in a similar direction as Twyla Tharp's Frank Sinatra suite of dances, it could be very interesting. It's very traditional "ballroom" at its foundation, but with a modernist twist. And it's very American. Actually I always thought D/W might do very well with the score to The Pirate, the 1948 musical starring Gene Kelly and Judy Garland. The songs are by Cole Porter--very theatrical, very showy. And there's one number--"Voodoo"--which is quite the sexy little thing. Just a thought...
No way are D/W doing a program that might look like a knockoff of V/M's Funny Face. But it's possible that V/M might do another movie/stage musical program because they beat D/W with it, but do one they can sex up.
Although that is more up Charlie's and Meryl's alley-best hair in skating
Ah, The Pirate is a very different kind of movie from Funny Face. Actually the whole Marlie/Moir dyad reminds me of a similar dyad with Gene Kelly (The Pirate) and Fred Astaire (Funny Face). Which is one of the reasons why I think it would suit Marlie. Plus I don't think the music has ever been used--and wouldn't it be nice to have fresh music for an Olympic year (one of the reasons why I think Moir did so well with the Mahler--unexpected AND fresh). But of course, YMMV.
V/M have to share the one in Canton, and every morning brings a new race between the two of them to park there first. They sometimes spy each other on the street before reaching the lot, and then the gloves are off, LOL.
This banner celebrating the four friends would have to come down too. :(
Did not realize that the abandoned Sinatra program had been Zoueva's idea, and not Davis' or White's. Glad that D/W are exercising their own judgment.

That banner was designed by a Kanadian Konspirator...
