Sorry I’ve been so out of it! I can’t believe I couldn’t even wish everyone a Merry Christmas yesterday because I was so drugged up (on major decongestants, pain relievers, and Maxalt, because every little tiny cold of mine seems to lead to an all-out sinus infection, which in turn leads to a several-day-long “migraine episode” as my neurologist calls them…) Anyway, Merry late Christmas
I’m starting to feel better (though I still have hopefully the last of the “migraine clusters” lingering), and I promise to blog soon about all the wonderful Alvin Ailey I saw before I got so sick (and, well, some of it during my illness — if anyone sitting on the left side of the back orchestra at City Center on Saturday came down with anything, sorry; I love this company far far too much to miss a single performance just because I can’t hear or breathe or swallow!!), and of course Pasha’s “Rhythm of Love.”
In the meantime, here’s a write-up by someone who saw Danny Tidwell’s and Rasta Thomas’s ‘Nutz’ (thanks to Rebecca for the link), and here’s a little excerpt of Danny performing Le Corsaire on Selly’s blog. Hope everyone had a happy holiday!
