This was a great performance. I wish I had bought tickets for a 2nd night. The Otis Redding number was wonderful and Revelations was everything it needed to be. The theatre's air conditioner was out of wack though and it was bloody hot.

The Alvin Ailey performance and dancers, as always, were lovely to watch. The singers were an added bonus, and it was marvelous to be at the 50th anniversary and to celebrate Mr. Ailey's achievement
