No Intermissions : The Life Of Agnes De Mille, Paperback / softback Book

No Intermissions : The Life Of Agnes De Mille Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Pioneering a distinctly American style that combined modern dance and ballet with a traditional folk idiom, Agnes de Mille popularized what had been an elitist art and irrevocably changed the American musical theater.

During a life that spanned most of the twentieth century, de Mille worked and played with a fabulous cast of characters, from her uncle (the legendary Cecil B. de Mille) to Charlie Chaplin, Martha Graham, Cole Porter, NoA"Coward, Rebecca West, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Drawing on unpublished papers and extensive interviews with friends, colleagues, relatives, and de Mille herself, Carol Easton takes us behind the scenes of de Mille's extraordinary life: struggling to establish a reputation, surviving a series of disastrous love affairs, meeting the conflicting demands of ambition and motherhood, and dealing with a devastating illness.

She unforgettably brings to life the combination of intelligence, artistry, and humor that was Agnes de Mille.
