Jer(k)ome Robbins and the Orchestra Pit
Jerome Robbins was a jerk. He is also highly regarded as a creative genius and one of the top choreographers from ballet to Broadway of the 20th century. Having choreographed huge hits like West Side Story, On the Town and Fiddler on The Roof, it is hard to argue with his five Tony and two Academy Awards. Robbins has had a lasting impression on the dance world. However, he has still yet to escape the perception of being an awful and cold-hearted man to dance for.
