Personal Quote:

When I look back on my career, I realize I had a lot of nerve. I had stride. I had guts. If you really want to be a choreographer, get down to business. Give it all you've got. You've got to prove yourself honey; and if you do it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman.

Trivia:

Was nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Choreographer eight times: in 1958 for "The Music Man," in 1959 for "Whoop-Up," in 1960 for "Take Me Along," in 1961 for "Irma la Douce," in 1965 for "Half a Sixpence," in 1966 for "Mame," in 1968 for "Illya Darling," and in 1977 for "I Love My Wife." She never won. See more »
