    Princess Leppard, I promise you - the "writhing worm", LOL, is gone!

    As for calling his fabric a "giant diaper"...well, maybe it starts out that way, but soon it transforms into an ethereal ribbon of sensual movement...or something like that.

    Now get yourself a ticket and go - maybe Plushy will be a "surprise" special guest star....okay, that's a stretch...but still - a great way to spend a couple of hours.

    Zanzibar, given the music list for this show, I don't know that Plushy himself could get me there. I have a very low tolerance for overwrought schmaltz and also for cheese (Shout?), and although I love Robbie Williams, Todd skating to him makes want to run screaming from the building....

IMO not a headliner yet--but I'd love to see her get back into shape and become one!


    I think it could do with the fact she's an American OGM winner... Yes, Todd is an American.. But not an OGM winner.. I'm thinking that's the reason.. Don't get me wrong.. I am just wondering if that's the case... Being it's in the USA, she's an American lady who won Olympic Gold...



    Order doesn't matter to me... I just care when I see my favorites... I'd love it if B&S had three programs any place in the show.....

    Well, I think both are great reviews! The one by Misha Berson maybe a bit more critical, perhaps? LOL, as written by a theater critic... Anyway, I really liked this Ilia excerpt in the article:

    >>Also thrilling was the appearances by guest star Olympic gold medalist Ilia Kulik. There's no more assured jumper, or creative skater, than this rosy-cheeked dynamo, whose tight, airy spins and powerful eloquence ignited the ballad "A House is Not a Home." Even better: Kulik's inventive jazz-funk groove to "Green Tomatoes," a crowd-pleaser studded with flawless triple jumps, Russian split jumps, bopping footwork and keen musicality. >

    The spotlight shines brightest, though, on the solo and duo acts. And on that score, the evening's highlight reel would begin with smashing turns by figure-skating team Kyoko Ina and John Zimmerman, who use their dexterity, boldness and height disparity to maximum advantage.

    Skating to Maroon 5's "Harder to Breathe," for instance, the strapping Zimmerman threw his petite, whirling partner across the ice with the ease of someone tossing off a silk scarf. So why hasn't this pair scored an Olympic medal yet? You got me.

    That is so true. They have a dismount where he just slams her down from over his head straight into the ice head-first. The only thing that saves her is, because he is so tall she can skim through his legs with only her ponytail brushing the ice!

    Sex Bomb? I love Sex Bomb. Carmen? Love it. St. Petersburg 300? Love it.

    Before that? He was just a cute kid with a Biellman, so I, uh, didn't pay as much attention to his musical choices.

    But having said all that, if you love contemporary pop music, SOI will probably be a great delight to you, and there's nothing wrong with that. But unless you want a mad woman screaming in agony as Michael Bolton or Maroon 5 warble, it's probably preferable that I'm not there.
