The Independent's article on the Sadler's litigation is the most thorough to date. Let's hope that the theatre's case is as strong as their boss Ian Albery believes.<P><A HREF="http://www.independent.co.uk/enjoyment/Theatre/Dance/2000-08/wells310800.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>The Independent article</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited August 31, 2000).]

Good point Susan. I haven't heard anything, but an ambitious programme for 2001-2002 has been announced with Dutch national Ballet, Pina Bausch, Mark Morris Dance Group and Ballett Frankfurt. <P>It seems to me that you wouldn't enter into such contracts unless you were confident that you were going to be around. It remains the premier dance venue in London IMHO.
