We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Voice of the City Jerome Robbins and New York


What: Voice of the City Jerome Robbins and New York

Where: New York Library for the Performing Arts
            40 Lincoln Center Plaza
             New York, NY

Who: All ages

When: Through March 30, 2019

 
 

Mom's view: The current exhibit, Voice of the City Jerome Robbins New York covers the life and career of the celebrated choreographer, director, dancer, and producer with a particular emphasize on how his life influenced and was influenced by the City of New York. It covers his entire life and career from his earliest beginnings through the AIDS activisim of some of his later years. The exhibit includes numerous drawings, posters, costume sketches and more from some of his most famous productions including Fancy Free, Fiddler on the Roof, and more. There are costumes from West Side Story and On the Town. There is  even  an Oscar and the pages from the original script of West Side Story which was then to be called East Side Story and to involve conflict between Jews and Italian Catholics instead of the story of conflict between whites and Puerto Ricans that we know today. There are also numerous pages and scraps from Jerome Robbins own diaries. The exhibit is quite comprehensive and one that anybody interested in the arts and the history of the arts will enjoy. Please not that while the exhibit is open to all ages, it probably will not be very interesting to young children. Also, while the exhibit can be visited in a brief amount of time if you want to go through and look carefully at each object and read all the material, it will probably take considerably longer. This free exhibit is open when the library is open specifically 12:00 to 8:00 Mondays and Thursday, 12:00 - 6:00 Tuesday. Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. It is closed Sundays.
