Good point. And if the Board is running the business end, I guess that could save money.

I'd hate to see the main -- or even worse, the only -- criterion be what would draw best at the box office. By that measure alone, pole dances would do better than Balanchine.

How about Balanchine on a pole. I'd pay to see that.
