From the Boston Globe:<P><B>Theater District has just the ticket to rally troupes</B><P><BR>By Maureen Dezell, Globe Staff, 9/28/2001<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Broadway-bound belters, ballet dancers, opera singers, and scores of area actors plan to raise their voices in rousing renditions of ''God Bless America'' and ''There's No Business Like Show Business'' in the Theater District on Tuesday. The midday rally, ''On With the Show,'' is slated to kick off a monthlong promotional campaign that will sing the praises of live performance in Boston - and point to the perils it faces. <P><BR>The prime movers behind Tuesday's event are the Wang Center for the Performing Arts and Clear Channel Entertainment/Broadway in Boston. Arch-competitors, their collaboration underscores a growing trepidation among presenters and producers that an unprecedented number of show cancellations and half-filled halls they've seen in recent weeks are harbingers of a dismal future.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/271/living/Theater_District_has_just_the_ticket_to_rally_troupes+.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

Year end roundup from the Boston Globe:<P><B>Backstage ferment, glorious movement</B><P><BR>By Christine Temin, Globe Staff, 12/30/2001<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>In these lean times, organizations are collaborating on pricey presentations. The Celebrity Series and the Wang Center joined forces to bring England's Royal Ballet to Boston to perform a standard-setting ''Swan Lake.'' In skill and style, the Royal offered world-class dancing. Visits to Boston by big classical companies have been rare in the last decade; the Royal's was the first event in the Celebrity Series/Wang plan to import one big ballet troupe a year for five years. <P>The Celebrity Series teamed with another local organization, the New England Foundation for the Arts, to present Mikhail Baryshnikov's White Oak Dance Project in ''PASTforward,'' old works and new by the radical choreographers of the Judson Dance Theater, which redefined modern dance in the 1960s. Baryshnikov is generally regarded as the epitome of glamor; Judson was allergic to it. How ironic that Baryshnikov, with his name recognition and box-office clout, is the only dancer who could sell a program in which he did a turn playing onstage propmeister and cleanup crew.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/364/living/Backstage_ferment_glorious_movement+.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A> <BR>
