Margarita Shrainer will star as Swanilda.

And has legs for days... Another score for Makhar Vaziev.

If you're in the mood for some fantastic Off-Broadway theater, The Beast in the Jungle is still going strong at the Vineyard Theatre on East 15th Street just off of Union Square. The production's stars include Irina Dvorovenko in her most accomplished acting role to date and the brilliant Tony Yazbeck. The show's run has been extended to June 24th. Tickets available here.
With all of these fantastic ballet dancers rockin' the Broadway and Off-Broadway stages around town and around the world, who should we expect to show up in the revival of A Chorus Line at New York City Center from November 14-18 for seven performances only? So many possible singular sensations... Haglund isn't going to wait around for casting to be announced on this one, and you shouldn't either. (Tickets to the general public go on sale on June 18th. Members can buy now.)
Why not join NYCC to get advance ticket purchase opportunities to events like A Chorus Line and the Encores! presentation of I Married An Angel starring Sara Mearns, and Balanchine: The City Center Years.
Haglund is skipping ABT's Romeo and Juliet next week; so, it may be a little quiet on the blog.
