Let's be real for a minute....Anyone who stayed on on as a dancer or otherwise after the first round of full board resignation last February followed by evacuation by the rest of the staff shortly thereafter should have had the good sense to get the 'hell out of dodge' a year ago. They certainly had the opportunity.
Those few dancers that are left made the choice to sign on for ANOTHER season even after they decried mistreatment...going to the board about multiple issues with the artistic leadership, being told last year their pay may not come...knowing full well all the controversy and great potential risk by signing a contract for yet ANOTHER season. But they did it anyway and were persuaded to by the artistic staff. Most of the dancers last year had the good sense to leave when they saw everything come to light publicly (in City Paper, P&C and witnessing it first hand)...why anyone would sign on for another year after knowing and seeing all that happened is beyond me...and why any new dancer would not do their research before signing on to move to Charleston to work for that company this past year is stultifying to say the least..so forgive me if I dont sympathize with people who CHOSE to be in the position they are in...ignoring the multitude of red flags and warning signs.
No art is worth having to endure such repetitive negativity and misery...unless you simply crave that sensation.
Well according to the reviewer the actors werent faulted. Just one actor was faulted. It's a tiny room, pretty easy to hear just about anything, and I had the same hearing issue the reviewer is talking about.
