Commemorating both the birthday and legacy of one of the world's best choreographers, "Merce Cunningham at 90" opened at BAM, yesterday evening. The performance brought creative standouts including Steve Buscemi, Parker Posey, Marisa Tomei and pop art icon wife Dorothy Lichtenstein. An endless innovator, the inspiring nonagenarian behind the show stood out even among the rock hard bods of his dancers.
