Spaulding – The Tightlipped Grinch Of Boston

When Wang Center director Josiah Spaulding announced he was kicking out Boston Ballet and its annual “Nutcracker” performances in favor of a traveling Radio City Rockettes tour, he provoked a storm of questions. But he refuses to talk to anyone further about the decision, especially the press. He “was happy to be front and center in the press during the Wang Center’s glory days when he spearheaded an enormous revival of the Theatre District, that, quite simply, made Boston a more vibrant more exciting place to live. Now he’s made a decision that causes consternation and anger about his eviction of an event that’s owned as much by the people of New England as it is by the Boston Ballet or the Wang Center.”
