“No individual pushed me harder or taught me more than Jerome Robbins. He was brilliant at infusing his work with subtle emotion, poignancy, humor, and memory. I’m thrilled to bring this Festival dream to fruition.”

“No other creative figure of the latter twentieth century was as contradictory as Jerome Robbins, and few were as controversial. 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.” – PBS
