In today's New York Times, arts writer Charles Isherwood dives into YouTube and manages to get past "people with an excessive fondness for the cute antics of their pets." And what's the matter with that? Instead, Isherwood explores YouTube for "high art" - namely, opera, dance and Broadway musical clips. He expresses disappointment in coming up empty on bootleg material from the original Broadway production of "A Chorus Line" but, thankfully, was able to dig up this clip from Grand Rapids Civic Theater's recent production of the show.
