Image <P>Susan Stroman clutching her Tony nominations<P><BR>Ben Brantley pays another visit to Susan Stroman's "Contact":<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>More than most shows, however, it relied almost entirely on the kinetic exuberance of its performers, who danced their stories to recorded classical and pop music. "Contact" didn't have the built-in automatic pilot of spectacle-driven works like "Les Misérables" or "The Lion King." And who honestly expected its ensemble to maintain those high spirits night after night after night?<P>Yet a recent visit to "Contact," which has moved to the larger Vivian Beaumont Theater and picked up a bucketful of Tony Awards, found the show in a robust, muscle-flexing state of health that takes the chill right out of the flu season. This three- part, self-described "dance play" has ripened into mellowness, with a newly relaxed expansiveness that doesn't dilute its intoxication factor.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/05/arts/05CHOI.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/05/arts/05CHOI.html</A>

Another:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>'Contact' is simple, stunning, pure and exuberant</B><P>Pamela Fisher, SF Examiner<P>This is an era when simplicity sells. "Simple Living" is one of the hottest new magazines and book titles like "101 to Simplify Your Life" and finding your Zen zone bust the best-seller charts. Meanwhile, as the last millennium wound down, Broadway bustled with frou-frou extravaganzas like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Lion King."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/ex_files/default.jsp?story=X0524CONTACT1" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
