|Almost show time|
Ken pointed out in his excellent review that the moment the dancers donned sneakers at the beginning of the first act, you knew that you were in for something special. It is interesting to see dancers looking like everyday people in street clothes performing extraordinary steps that ordinary people couldn't ever do! And as someone who can barely balance on one foot, I am doubly and triply impressed.
Also, I got to add another ticket to my ticket bottle. (I noticed when taking a close look that I had an $8 ticket from the Mount Holyoke Summer Theater alongside the slightly more expensive Broadway shows and the less expensive (free) tickets to Shakespeare in the Park.)
I had had a cup of coffee before I left home, so it was a little hard to get sleepy, especially with visions of dancers in my head, but it was worth it.
