Hurray for Mae

To the Editor:

Kudos to Mae Banner, who is a wonderful ballet critic, especially compared to The New York Times and New York Post, which I read every day. Ms. Banner’s knowledge of the ballet is as good as any New York City (or worldwide critic thanks to the wonders of cyberspace) writer, and her enthusiasm and love of the art of dance makes her a truly caring critic who knows what she’s talking about when puts pen to paper. She’s a treasure!

Metroland editors made two factual mistakes in the course of editing the story “Nature and Nurture,” about the farm in Saratoga where Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Funny Cide was born and raised [Aug. 14]. The sub-headline on page 21 incorrectly states that the horse was born in Kentucky; Funny Cide was, in fact, born at McMahon of Saratoga Thouroghbreds. Also, the photo caption on the same page incorrectly identifies the two horses pictured; the horses in the photo are Baltic Connection and her foal. Metroland regrets the errors.

Also, the photograph and caption accompanying Ralph Hamman’s review of the Berkshire Theatre Festival’s production of Talley’s Folly [Theater, Aug. 7] are incorrect. It is not a photo of the BTF production, but rather of Howard Schaffer and Anna Remet in a Theatre Voices staging of the same play earlier this year. We apologize for any confusion.
