We all gathered on Thursday evening for the opening night of both the 2010 Celebrity Series Season and Mark Morris’s run here in Boston. It was a special evening dedicated to Marty Jones’s 25th Anniversary at The Celebrity Series. In her honor, a special piece was commissioned by Mark Morris and funded by The Little Family Foundation. The piece, Petrichor, premiered as the centerpiece of this evening in a packed Cutler Majestic Theatre. Marty is a dear friend and one of the first people I met when I first moved to Boston. It was great to see my Celebrity Series friends, Michael Botte, Amy Lam, and, of course, Walter Pierce shown above with Marty. She will be retiring from The Celebrity Series as President and Executive Director at the end of this season but stay tuned: I’m sure there are many more wonders to come from this amazing woman.
