    I just got 2 tickets for tomorrow's (Saturday) 2pm show... Goldstar released more tickets last minute, but my friend can't attend. Anyone want to buy a premiere orchestra ticket for $50? I am picking up at willcall prior to performance. You can email me at [masked].

    Oops! The program was 5 star, definitely - I'm new to MU - I thought I was rating the Meetup experience itself - since no one Met Up with me for the event, I just put a 1 - wishing myself better luck next time. Seeing Ailey is one of the great dance highlights of lifetime.

    Why only 1 star? Did you not like the performance? I saw that program last year and loved it. Going tomorrow night can't wait!

    Alvin Ailey's inimitable group performed "Cry", "The Three Kings", and "Revelations". As at the last performance I attended, the audience's connection (and mine) to the vibrant message of transcending struggle with deep faith was part of the event. "The Three Kings" is an interesting work - the third king is Martin Luther King, and was danced with smooth, sainted, and confident fluidity by Clifton Brown. "Cry" was danced by three dancers, instead of the usual one lone woman, and was an interpretation of black womens' struggle made rich by the use of three individual dancers.
    At the pre-preformance talk, Rene Robinson, who dances the parasol-carrying lead in "Revelations" frequently, spoke about her work under Mr. Ailey. She explained the Ailey outreach that is part of their work: Ailey performances in Los Angeles will be attended by 6,000 students this week, 20 student dancers were recruited and performed in "Memoria", 6-week dance camps for students are held in US cities.

    I'll be carrying a red purse and sitting in the Founder's Circle at intermission if anyone wants to say hi.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
