Editor Amanda Vaill will discuss her new book, "Jerome Robbins, by Himself" with Skidmore College Theater Professor Eunice Ferreira and Skidmore College Dance Professor Jason Ohlberg.
Vaill, the author of the Jerome Robbins biography "Somewhere" has edited this fascinating collection of Robbins' own writings: letters, journals and an incomplete autobiography, to create a fascinating inside look at the legendary director & choreographer.
The titanic choreographer, creator of memorable ballets, master of Broadway musicals, legendary show doctor and director is now revealed in his own words--the closest we will get to a memoir/autobiography--from his voluminous letters, journals, notes, diaries, never before published. Edited, and with commentary by Amanda Vaill.
"A fascinating selection of illustrations, photographs, and writings ... provocative and illuminating, this portrait will delight dance enthusiasts." --Publishers Weekly
