Abstract:

No other creative figure of the latter twentieth century was as contradictory as Jerome Robbins, and few were as controversial. Theater producer, director, and choreographer, he was a master of the Broadway musical, transforming its possibilities with such works as West Side Story, Gypsy, and Peter Pan, and was one of the greatest ballet choreographers this country has ever produced. Robbins was a five time Tony Award winner, recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and one of only six directors who won the Academy Award for Best Director for a film debut. This documentary features excerpts from his personal journals, archival performance footage, and never-before-seen rehearsal recordings, as well as interviews with Robbins himself and over forty witnesses to his extraordinary life and career.
