A lovely article from one of the SF Chronicle's theater critics. He sums it up pretty well. What do you think?

"Oh my God," the woman behind me in Zellerbach Hall said one night last week, as the curtain began to rise. "It's starting."

Well, yes, I thought. It is five minutes past 8, and that's more or less why we're all here -- to see the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater perform. But I also knew what she meant and felt, and I felt it myself. Dance is thrilling, an ever-surprising ecstasy that both lifts us out of our gravity-bound existence and roots us more firmly in it. It says everything and nothing about being alive; it means what it is. It puts us squarely, fully in the moment.
