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.
