Center Stage [Film]
[Columbia/Tristar 2000] For that person who has lost faith in New York as a place of promise, Center Stage offers the older media New York, the New York of "Lucy" and "Dick Van Dyke." The American Ballet Company at Lincoln Center is the focus for this ballet-oriented film about the attempt of several young dancers to make their dreams come true. Crime is non-existent. You do get a great look at a rarely seen part of the city, the arts backstage. Key elements are diversity, homosexuality, crowds, and landmarks. Take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. Have your career decided upon by your performance on that one special night. New York is a tough place, but it still is the top of the world.
