Informed that his upcoming performances at Los Angeles’s Alexandria Hotel will go toe to toe (he, barefoot, they, in pointe shoes) with American Ballet Theatre’s “The Bright Stream” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Guggenheim fellow Miguel Gutierrez said: “Shit! It’s always between me and those fuckers!”
[Would I make that up?]
So, who are you for, Miguel or ABT?
