From Marcia Siegel in the Boston Phoenix (following review of Hubbard Street Dance Company):

The new American Masters special Jerome Robbins: Something To Dance About ... surveys the famous choreographer's crossover successes and more than a few of his personal weaknesses. Robbins's life was a theater of dualities, and the two-hour documentary, produced and directed by Judy Kinberg, testifies to this with generous illustrations of his dances and shows, his conflicted sexuality, his tremendous achievements and self-doubt. Fifty or so of his associates describe working with a creative dynamo and terrorizing taskmaster.
