Jacques D’Amboise at Barnes & Noble Tonight

Former NYCB dancer Jacques d’Amboise (photo above by Eduardo Patino) will read from his new memoir, I Was a Dancer, at the Upper East Side Barnes and Noble (86th and Lex) tonight (March 9th) at 7 p.m.

Here’s Macaulay’s review of the book.

I haven’t read it yet, but am adding it to my long list. First, I must finish a YA book by a Canadian author that I agreed to review.

Mr. d’Amboise was also at Symphony Space recently talking about the book (as a Facebook friend pointed out to me), but I appear to have missed it. Did anyone go?

If the Symphony Space d’Amboise event happened last night, I was at Keigwin + Company at the Joyce, for Exit, making its world premiere. Review coming soon!

  1. You might enjoy these two interviews:

    The first is from March 7 on WNYC’s Leonard Lopate show:

    The second is from August. Christopher Walken was sitting in as guest host for Lopate. And British comedian Eddie Izzard stopped by as well.

  2. I love it, Tonya. Love that picture. After all these years, Jacques is still giving great “face” for the camera. What a Divo! Can’t wait to pick up my copy at the library!
