Heads up! $20 tickets available for restless creature at the joyce! I just bought three for Sunday matinee may 31. It's the only matinee of the run. With phone service charges the cost was $69 for 3, one center ticket a few rows back is $75. I'll crane my neck a little!

There's a good 15 sec clip of Wendy Whelan in Pictures of an Exhibition in the new AOL Ratmansky episode. It begins at 4:18 -

Whelan had the good fortune to be assigned the most lyrical sections of the music to dance.   I wonder who will get assigned her part when Pictures returns in 2015.  Maybe poor Sara can get out of her previously assigned part of jumping around breathlessly  and bruising herself as she slams down to the floor, and instead upgrade to Wendy's more balletic role.  As an aside, the movement that Amar Ramasar is doing is straight out of Paul Taylor.
