For those of you in Seattle and lucky enough to have a ticket to see Mark Morris (it's reportedly sold out), please let us know if the mystery guest is indeed Baryshnikov and what you think of the performance:

I was kind of hoping for Rob Besserer.

It's definitely sold out: On the Boards announced this to their email list last week. All tickets have to be picked up at the box office no earlier than one hour day of show. If there's extra security, I doubt there will be scalpels hanging around the theater. I suspect they'd have to advertise, pick up the ticket, and do the hand-off at Pagliacci's Pizza.

On the Boards just sent out the press release -- Baryshnikov will indeed be performing here in the new work, and also in Florida and in the company's April dates. Here's part of the release.

[font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"](Brooklyn, NY) – The latest work from [/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"]Mark Morris[/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"] will make its world premiere on Thursday, October 4, 2012 in Morris’s hometown of Seattle, Washington at On the Boards. [/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"]A Wooden Tree[/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"] is set to music and words by [/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"]Ivor Cutler[/size][/font][font="Times New Roman, serif"][size="3"] (1923 – 2006), a Scottish poet, singer, songwriter and humorist.

Then, in April 2013 (dates and additional program TBA), the new work with Baryshnikov will make its New York City premiere at the Mark Morris Dance Center, Brooklyn, NY.[/size][/font]

As I understand it, there are still a few tickets available for the Florida performances.
