In Appreciation of Robbins
Judith | 02/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is a veritable treasure chest of film clips of Robbins' work on Broadway, in film, and ballet. Some might wish the ballet coverage was more extensive, but what is there is wonderful to see, and much of it is with original casts. This DVD is a must have for dance lovers.

"I knew many of the people associated with Jerome Riobbins though I never met him. This DVD seems to be a very accurate and honest portrayal of the man, his talernt, his demons and his great contribution to American theatre whether it be on Broadway or the field of ballet. It is pure joy to behold."

"Excellent. A must have for musical theatre buffs. First saw it on PBS and loved it, although the Phoenix PBS HD Channel 8 sound seems to have odd buzzes and drop outs via the usually reliable DirecTV. Anyway, having the DVD solves the sound problem. Fascinating look at a true genius of the golden age of musicals. I have watched it 3 times in a month."
