BWW Review: OSIPOVA & ARTISTS Crush It with a Captivating Contemporary Triple BillBWW Review: OSIPOVA & ARTISTS Crush It with a Captivating Contemporary Triple Bill

Osipova and Polunin, as well as Jason Kittleberger and James O'Hara who shared the stage for this run, proved unequivocally that this goal is achievable. (more...)
