Amanda Vaill - Jerome Robbins, by Himself: Selections from His Letters, Journals, Drawings, Photographs, and an Unfinished Memoir — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 14, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

From The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof to a stunning catalog of ballets, films, and musical theatre productions, Jerome Robbins (1918-1998)—a choreographer, dancer, director, and more—left an indelible stamp across the performing arts. Though he never wrote a memoir, this collection of previously unpublished writings gives a marvelous overview of his life, work, and temperament. Vaill, whose books include the classic Everybody Was So Young, profiled Robbins in Somewhere as well as in the award-winning PBS documentary, Something to Dance About; her selections from Robbins’s letters, journals, drawings, and notes include her illuminating annotations as well as excerpts from his correspondence with friends and associates such as George Balanchine, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Tanaquil Le Clercq, and many more.
