Agnes De Mille’s Artistic Justice

NewYorker Magazine

I once lived in Manhattan – in fact Beth and I got married there – way back in 1965. We had a good time spending my money, doing all the fun things – even going to Dance performances. I cannot believe how expensive it is to live there now.

This bio of Agnes De Mille shows how active she was on both coasts – including Hollywood, which was more receptive to her style – and where her choreography still exists in film musicals, such as Oklahoma! – which is about as far as the real Oklahoma as you can get.

Back in those innocent days, we could still believe that world was just around the corner.
