NYCB updated its casting today. It looks like Fairchild and DeLuz in T&V are being replaced by A Stafford and Garcia.

When I saw Michelle Wiles in T&V during ABT's 2008 City Center season, my first thought was "Hmmm ... that's about how Abi Stafford would tackle it" (I've never seen Stafford in the role). I guess now I'll have a chance to test my hypothesis.

NYCB casting tends to list the STARS AND STRIPES casts according the order of the regiments.

that is, after naming the leading pas de deux dancers (whose movement is set to "Liberty Bell" and "El Capitan"), it gives the names the solo dancers leading, in order, the first, second and third "Campaigns," thus the Corcoran Cadets (originally Kent); the Rifle Regiment (originally Adams and originally given third); and Thunder and Gladiator (originally Barnette and originally given second). so yes, Lowery is cast for the Rifle Reg. (Adams' role).
