Exquisite! This was my first time seeing the Alvin Ailey group and definitely will not be the last! Really enjoyed the performance; my favorite was IN/Side dance/expressed by Kirven James Boyd (turns out he's a fellow Bostonian).

The performance was wonderful. My problem was that there were no playbills! Therefore, we did not know what the dances were, who the choreographers were and who were dancing! Asked the ushers where I was located (balcony) and they said that they...continued

Unfortunately, we were sitting too far back to really enjoy the performances. Perhaps, next time we could be advised of the seating and would know to bring binoculars. Music was rather loud and we were sitting very far back. Realize the music...continued

Alvin Ailey is always a delightfully wonderful dance experience for the whole family.
There were quite a few young folk in the audience and no one seemed bored.
Prices for the performances were affordable.
