Give me something to dance about and Ill dance it. -Jerome Robbins to Irving Berlin

In a life that inspired controversy, no one disputes the place that Jerome Robbins holds as the preeminent director/choreographer of American musical theatre. He transformed Broadway with shows like West Side Story, Gypsy and Fiddler on the Roof and he forged a career in ballet, first at American Ballet Theatre, then at New York City Ballet.

This two-hour film, produced and directed by Judy Kinberg and written by best-selling Robbins' biographer Amanda Vaill, features excerpts from Robbins' work, never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and interviews with many of his colleagues from ballet and Broadway, including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Suzanne Farrell, Jacques d'Amboise, Arthur Laurents, Chita Rivera, and Stephen Sondheim.

"Straddling the worlds of ballet (Fancy Free, I'm Old Fashioned) and Broadway(West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof), Robbins invested both with the lithe power of his lines and an elegant bravado. Judy Kinberg's sturdy documentary pins down the man and his magic."
