I saw both performances and Tony Shaloub deserved the award.

Wow, I couldn't disagree more with what a lot of people are saying. Art should generate strong emotions, both good and bad. I actually love it when I hear someone say they hate a show that I loved. I listen in to find out why- do they have valid arguments? Good theatre should generate discussions, debates and even arguments.
On a side note, sometimes I find shows I've thought I've hated right after the curtain has gone down are shows I remember the most. There are times whe

That's not relevant. since these were affiliated organizations, company members wouldprobably be considered to be in positions of power over students.
Maybe I'm wrong but I think Alexandra Waterbury was never an employee of NYC Ballet. She was a student at School of American Ballet, the school of the Ballet Company and a training ground for new talent. I find this entire thing disgusting, but morals for things not related to work are not a fireable offense. Likewise, most certainly NYC Ballet will be dismissed from the lawsuit because their term of employing Chase Finlay was not on condition he have an affair with or sleep with Ms
Another reason to do any cast recording is to entice regional , community and high school/college theatres to do it. Since the only good thing about the show is the puppet, once this production closes I can see the show disappearing forever (Thank God!)
Congrats to the cast and crew for great reviews. I loved the show except for one thing. Someone has to explain Reeve Carney to me. His voice is ugly, he can't act and he's not really that good looking that the other two things wouldn't matter.
The fabulous Ruth Gorden was 59 when she originated the role of Dolly in Thornton Wilders "The Matchmaker" the play "Hello Dolly" is based on. Shirley Booth was in her 50s when she did the movie. I think 30's and early 40s is a bit young. Dolly was supposed to have been married for a long time and widowed for a long time. 50's seems to be the ideal age. Barbra on the other hand was completely miscast in the role.
