August 20, 2018 - NEWS ABOUT NEXT WEEK'S AUDITIONS NOW!

THE STORY OF JEROME ROBBINS & GROVER'S PUPPY


As part of the centennial celebration of legendary Broadway director and choreographer Jerome Robbins, an incredible event took place on the deck of the USS Intrepid docked along the Hudson River. The audience was treated to a live performance from the recent revival of On The Town, based on Robbins’ ballet, Fancy Free. Featuring three dancing sailors, Tony Yazbeck, Clyde Alves, and Manny Stark, the number was choreographed by Joshua Bergasse.

Following the live performance, the event moved to the theater onboard where a sold-out crowd heard recollections from panelists Grover Dale, original cast member of West Side Story and co-director of Jerome Robbins’ Broadway; Joshua Bergasse, Tony nominated choreographer of the 2014 revival of On the TownAdam Green, son of lyricist Adolph Green; Daniel Ulbricht, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet; and moderator Amanda Vaill, author of Somewhere: The Life of Jerome Robbins.

Grover enlightened the audience with stories of Robbins molding and shaping West Side Story through his creative use of the 28 dancers he hired. As much as the crowd loved hearing about Robbins use of dancers, it was memories of backstage shenanigans that got them going. Grover's story of how his puppy Skitter reacted to Jerome Robbins showing up at the door delighted everyone.  

Don’t miss your chance to watch the full Skitter story unfold in this video recorded during this appearance. It’s a story of how instincts and opportunity changed Grover’s life when new doors were opened for him. Use this link to watch the whole story as only Grover can tell it!
