Michelle Kwan starred with Brian Boitano in Skating Romance III - Love is in the Air. I was lucky enough to be there! The one-performance-only event took place Saturday, July 19, 1997 in Atlantic City, NJ. The cast included Michelle, Brian, Yuka Sato, Brian Orser, Barbara Underhill and Paul Martini, Caryn Kadavy, Renee Roca and Gorsha Sur, Scott Williams, Aren Nielsen, and Charlene Wong.

When asked about the event, Michelle was quoted by Blades on Ice Online as saying, "My earliest Olympics memory is as a seven-year-old watching Brian skate at the '88 Olympics. His performance there became a huge motivating force in my skating career. To be able to star and skate with him in Skating Romance III is a dream come true." The show aired on the USA Network on December 12 and 13, 1997.

Since I attended this event just before my website went up, I didn't write a report on it like I have for other events I have attended this year. However, I may be posting some of my feelings of the event later. In the meantime, you can read Louis DiCesari's review of the show. Here are some articles about the show:

I may be scanning in some of my pictures from the event in the future (though most didn't come out too well because of our seats). Check out some pictures of the event courtesy of my friend Veronica Boettger.

Also, here are some other photos relating to the show:
