The audience practically stormed the gates to get into the theater tonight for NYCB's inaugural fall season at Lincoln Center. Exceptional entertainment at prices that were both reasonable and democratic, a snazzy jazz trio playing on the promenade before the performance and free booze at intermission – if only more of New York was this hospitable.
What a terrific start to the first fall season! It's difficult to point to one performance that rose above all of the others because everyone rose to tonight's occasion and delivered inspired performances. So, Haglund will award this exquisite Alexander McQueen Pump Bump Award to all of tonight's performers with thanks for a great evening:
