    I remember Pilobolus from the very beginning – I saw them on TV and was lucky to see them at the Wells Theatre in Norfolk many tears ago – I got front row center orchestra seats. I could hear them whisper to each other and was even sprayed with sweat (lucky me) when they danced in one wild sequence. I’ve always followed them – even have a recipe for popovers from way back when. Long live the greatest bunch of dancers!!!!
