From Marcia Siegel in the Boston Phoenix:
Twyla’s Dylan in New York...
Bob Dylan’s music isn’t the first thing you’d think of as the basis for a dance show. But Twyla Tharp has never been daunted by long odds — in fact, she seeks out gambits that would terrify any reasonable person. Instead of trying to repeat the scheme that brought her Broadway success in the all-dance Movin’ Out,... she ups the ante in The Times They Are A-Changin’, .... This time the venture misfires.

Many reviews of the show, in which Bob Dylan's lyrics are grafted onto an elementary plot of Tharp's devising, have been vitriolic—partly colored, I suspect, by disappointment. And dance lovers may harbor a secret wish, "Why couldn't she have stuck with maintaining a company and making marvelous choreography for marvelous dancers?" Twyla being Twyla, hand wringing is useless.
