Jerome Robbins' "Poppa Piece"

In the early 1990s, as Jerome Robbins confronted the twilight of his storied career, he endeavored to create one last theater work that would reconcile the questions and mysteries of his life. Hidden away at his Bridgehampton beach home and cloistered behind the closed doors of private rehearsal studios, Robbins tirelessly attempted construct an honest self-portrait, detailing his own Jewish immigrant heritage, family history and personal failures. Join us for an archival dive into Robbins’ never produced autobiographical theater masterwork, "Poppa Piece." For this special program, the Library presents a collage of rarely heard private audio recordings, rehearsal footage, musical numbers, plus recitations of Robbins’ private journals and diaries.  

Presented as part of Carnegie Hall’s city-wide festival “Migrations: The Making of America.”
