I just saw some publicity for the Broadway show stating that Robert Fairchild will star in the Broadway run. Previews start in March with the opening in April. So I assume he is taking leave from NYCBALLET for the spring season. Is this right? Too bad for me-- now I'll have to see the show if I want to see him dance.

 

One should be so lucky .... You get to see a lot of him in the show ... and I think he has been most generous with his NYCB castings in the Winter season thus far (Leanne Cope did not return to the RB fold AT ALL) - at least while obviously being - or at least starting to be back in AiP rehearsals.  One thing I can promise you - having seen the show a few times in Paris - you won't be disappointed.

The show started rehearsals in New York City this past Monday.  I believe that this weekend's performances of R&J at NYCB may be his final performances at NYCB for the season.

In fairness to Leanne Cope, unlike Robbie Fairchild, who already has an apartment and an established life in New York City, Ms Cope probably needed the "off time" from the show to find housing in New York City, move her things to New York and get settled in an entirely new city.  So she had a lot more on her plate to do than R. Fairchild to prep for the broadway engagement.

Indeed - plus she probably wanted to understandably spend time with her family and VERY NEW husband (also with the RB) since she will be away for quite a time thereafter.  I didn't mean any slight against the lovely Ms. Cope - not at all.  I just wanted to pay my respectful admiration to the glorious Mr. Fairchild.
