Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A group portrait of the great Broadway choreographers from the mid-20th century to our own time, this title covers the lives of: Jerome Robbins, Agnes de Mille, Gower Champion, Bob Fosse, Michael Bennett, Tommy Tune, Graciela Daniele, and Susan Stroman. The hits generated by two generations of choreographer-directors define the Broadway stage: "Oklahoma!"; "On the Town"; "West Side Story"; "Hello, Dolly!"; "Fiddler on the Roof"; "A Chorus Line"; "Dancin'"; "Dream Girls"; "The Producers"; and many more. In researching this book, Robert Emmet Long conducted dozens of interviews with his subjects themselves as well as those who worked with them and also secured the cooperation of artists who do not typically give interviews.
