  • 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, Noël 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 Drawing on unpublished papers and extensive interviews with friends, colleagues,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.
