Sittin’ on the Dock of the Ballet

tmitHello! In case you missed them, I wanted to call your attention to two pieces I wrote for The New York Times in recent months. The first one was on the 50th anniversary of Otis Redding’s “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay.” I spoke with an extraordinarily cool range of people for the article: Steve Cropper, Zelma Redding, Grace Slick, Booker T. Jones, et alia. Plus I got a statement from Michael Bolton (which is not a sentence I ever thought I’d be typing). The second one was on the American debut of The Most Incredible Thing, the ballet with a score by the Pet Shop Boys and choreography by Javier de Frutos. I’m really proud of both–but the space constraints of newspaper articles meant that I couldn’t put in all the great stuff people told me, so I’ll try to post some of it here in coming weeks. Stay tuned….
