As the Joffrey kicks off its 50th Anniversary season tonight with Ashton's Midsummer Night's Dream, the Times takes a look back at what the company has meant to American dance and how its "daring if necessary" settling in Chicago ten years ago has had an impact on local companies. (The Joffrey will also be featured on today's Eighty Forty-Eight. update: We've learned that the segment ran first on Hello Beautiful! over the weekend and is archived here.)
