Carmen de Lavallade: My Life in Dance and Theater and Legends I Met Along The Way


Dear friends,

If you are a fan of Carmen de Lavallade’s, I know you will join me in my excitement about Ms. De Lavallade’s upcoming appearance on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire.  This marks Ms. De Lavallade’s 2nd appearance on Broadway and we couldn’t be more happy for her.  This exciting announcement fits perfectly in 651 ARTS’ year-long celebration of Carmen’s seven decades of invaluable contributions to the arts.

In order to make room for this active 81-year-old’s high demand – 651 ARTS has agreed to postpone our presentation of Carmen de Lavallade’s autobiographical performance work My Life in Dance and Theater and Legends I Met Along The Way to a date to be determined in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our audience members – but I am sure that all fans of Carmen’s will agree that the more opportunities to see her perform the better!

We hope that you will join us in honoring this important figure in theater and dance by attending the screening of Carmen & Geoffrey at the Baryshnikov Arts Center on April 24th at 7:00 PM.  Also, be sure to see Carmen in A Streetcar Named Desire which opens on April 22nd. Visit www.bacnyc.org for information about the screening and www.streetcaronbroadway.com for additional information about the Broadway production.

Please contact 651 ARTS at 718-636-4181 ext 2229 for any questions.

Thank you for your support of one of our country’s greatest living artists – Carmen de Lavallade, as well as 651 ARTS.
