Slaughter on Tenth Avenue
Former MLB catcher Mike Piazza visited our studios yesterday for a quick costume fitting and round of rehearsals in preparation for his cameo appearance as the Gangster in George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. Channeling his Italian heritage and adding a mafiosa twist, Mike turned out to be a natural fit for the role. Check out his impressive acting skills in this sneak peek video!
Our studio seems to be looking more and more like a New York dive, as we continue rehearsals for George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. For a sneak peek at this wildly entertaining work and to see how we are getting along with our tap dancing skills, check out this new VIDEO!
