Georgina Pazcoguin Joining On the Town

August 7, 2015

It seems like every time we blink, another one of our favorite ballerinas is joining the cast of On the Town. We couldn’t be more excited to see New York City Ballet’s Georgina Pazcoguin as Ivy, starting August 11th!

We can’t wait to see how Pazcoguin will make the role her own. If her performance in the cast’s ensemble, her dynamite performances in West Side Story Suite or the film adaptation of N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz are any indication, her time as Ivy is going to be high energy, to say the least. Fellow NYCB dancer Megan Fairchild has killed it in the role since the musical’s opening, and American Ballet Theatre principal Misty Copeland will undoubtedly do the same when she takes over for Pazcoguin beginning August 25th.
