“Dance in America”: Born to Be Wild; Allyson Green and Ben Wright: Interim

[The hour-long show] features four of American Ballet Theatre’s galaxy of fabulous male stars: Jose Manuel Carreño, Angel Corella, Vladimir Malakhov, and Ethan Stiefel. [It] has clearly been designed for popular consumption, urging the viewer to understand these phenomenal athlete-artists as regular guys. (Born to Be Wild) [This] extended duet . . . is rooted in the way- back-then ’20s, when pastel sentiments flourished in American culture. (Green and Wright) Village Voice 01/29/03
