Mike Piazza returns onstage for a curtain call after performing as a gangster during a dress rehearsal of the Miami City Ballet's performance of "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" on Friday. Piazza has a few lines in the company's production of the ballet George Balanchine choreographed as part of the 1930's musical "On Your Toes."
