on with the show

The show must go on.  Not just a Queen song, these five words carry a great deal of weight in the ballet world.  And right now, they are more true than ever.  Today, after 48 hours of fierce blizzard conditions and with over 2 feet of snowfall suffocating blanketing the East Side, the snow, er, show must go on.  Merde to all of the dancers performing back-to-back showings of Little Red Riding Hood today.  While admittedly one of the less favorable aspects, carrying on with the show during highly extreme circumstances is a very real part of our job as professional dancers- one that I believe sets us apart from any other pedestrian on the snow-covered street.  It’s time to show Providence and Nemo what FBP is really made of!
