Seattle Times recaps Friday night Dec 12, 2009

Michael Upchurch at the Seattle Times recaps Friday night's performance:

As "The A.W.A.R.D. Show!" continues, it reminds us that Seattle has some stellar dance talent in its midst — more than can possibly be helped out by the $10,000 prize attached to this four-night showcase presented by On the Boards and New York's Joyce Theater.

Thoughts About the A.W.A.R.D. Show!, First Night Dec 11, 2009

From Anne L:

Things that I liked a lot:
1. The huge audience. How often does the Mainstage sell out on a Thursday night? I hope OTB makes a lot of money from this format.

2. Tonya Lockyer running the post-performance Q & A. Her intelligence and insight almost seemed to be contagious.
