"Play" opens tonight and plays through Saturday.

From yesterday's City Arts article:

Finally, the company has a proper New York showcase, making its Joyce Theater debut in Play, a 90-minute, two-act work Andersen created in 2007 that features 28 of the company’s 35 dancers. The first act is set to music by Mozart, Schubert, Britten and Part while the second is all Stravinsky. As the title suggests, it is a playful exploration of classical dancing. The music creates the continuity as the work progresses through its seven sections.

NYC will get to see most of the great dancers in the Company in "Play".

Please see this and report!

There's no casting on the website, but the article says it's a 28-dancer piece for a company of 35, so at least 80% of the company will be on view in each performance.
