    I hear the performance tomorrow night is nearly sold out - if anyone is thinking of going, it's a good idea to call Ice Theater first and make sure tickets are still available.

    Kim Navarro had skated with ITNY prior to her partnership with Brent, so this is a homecoming for her.

    Beautiful program. FINALLY! After all that weird shiz and posing with Lady Gaga, finally something more subtle and emotional again. I like it!

    Thanks! That was wonderful. Anyone know who choreographed this? Whoever it is, Johnny should work with them more.

    According to the information with the video, he choreographed it himself.

    Thanks. I missed that info. Well, then, I think he should continue working with himself in the future. Actually, I'd really like to see him work with some of the choreographers associated with the Ice Theatre. The programs that Paul Wylie did with Lars Lubovich are still among my favorites.

    This performance has greatly contributed to my sanity today. All is not lost.

    (Never thought I'd say this, but just please, Johnny, shut up and skate)

    Looks like Johnny was channeling equal parts Oksana Baiul and Toller Cranston when he dreamed up his new program. I'm happy to see him get attention for this on-ice work.
