On Your Toes

Larry Fuller, famous for his work on Evita, joins forces with musical theatre specialist Charles B. Axton to create a sizzling rendition of the Rodgers and Hart Broadway classic.

This documentary goes behind the scenes at the Stuttgarter Ballet.

This first direct confrontation of the Broadway musical and the classic ballet was choreographed by the legendary George Balanchine, at the time just completing his stint as ballet master of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, in his first Broadway assignment.
