NYCB Vol. 6 No. 16 - Fancy Free

An excerpt from the outline that Jerome Robbins wrote for Fancy Free circa 1943:

“Three sailors explode onto the stage. They are out on shore leave, looking for excitement, women, drink, any kind of fun they can stir up. Right now they are fresh, full of animal exuberance and boisterous spirits, searching for something to do, something to happen.“
