Title

Yurek Lazowsky (unpublished)

Description

Lazowsky looks back on his time in the ballet Petrouchka, where there was not much dancing except in the last scene. He states that on the stage and life there needs to be sincerity, which he applied in Petrouchka in a scene when it came to crying where he “really cried.” This interview was not included in Newman's books.
