I was just on the phone with my best friend Katie, and we were discussing the subway ‘artists’ (scam-artists/ candy sellers/ beggars/ drummers/ occasionally good musicians)
I have always thought it would be fun to have a choreography showcase here in New York using all live musicians that I find in the subway stations. I would call my company the Manhattan Island of Misfits (based off the Island of misfit toys from the claymation Rudolph).
So I’m set for music. Now I need dancers. Even if this city is filled to the brim with actual talent, I want the undiscovered! In keeping with my ‘should be a dancer’ oscar category, I am now casting my
ALL CELEBRITY DANCE COMPANY!
So far- I have soloist Olivia Wilde. Next in the ranks are my principal dancers and couple- Jamie Lee Curtis and Jake Gyllenhal. Why these two you ask? Well, I’m basing some dance talent buried deep in Ms. Curtis based on this photo
and from all of the running she had to do in ‘Halloween’. Clearly, she has endurance! And, insider tip on the dance world, a lot of times men (or more often women) land jobs because of a partnership with another dancer, and people are hired as a couple. That being said, Ms. Curtis happens to be Mr Jake’s godmother, so I’m getting two for the price of one. Plus, who doesn’t want to watch that? (Even if you, like I, do NOT want to watch him in ‘the Prince of Persia’).
