New York Theatre Ballet showed off Agnus de Mille’s choreography from the Dream Ballet from Oklahoma, as Cole Potters overture from Anything Goes kicked things into high speed.

At City Center a production of A Chorus Line was playing, but the New York Pops let us know how spectacular Ed Kleban and Marvin Hamlisch’s score really is. Essential Voices USA joined in the fun.

My favorite part of the evening was the hot rendition of “Mambo” from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, as Essential Voices USA joined in for the quartet “Tonight”.
