"...Now, apart from the odd gala such as the grand opening of the Long Center, when do you see that kind of an all-star cast on a single stage these days, a congregation of high-wattage performers that cuts across the disciplines of dance, theatre, and music – and across so many genres of music at that: jazz, gospel, opera, folk, classical? And who puts together that kind of show anymore – not just in Austin but anywhere? Back in the early part of the last century, variety shows thrived, and a certain breed of producer could build his name and fortune on assembling the biggest, glitziest, most star-studded spectacle a stage could hold. But it's been 77 years since Ziegfeld ascended to that Great Balcony in the Sky and almost that many since Rose put the circus on Broadway in Rodgers and Hart's Jumbo (or had the original 4,000-seat Casa Mañana built for the Fort Worth Frontier Days, for that matter)..."
