Friends of Annie: Jerry Mitchell

Friends of Annie

Since the announcement of the Ann Reinking Scholarship Program, we have been collecting quotes and stories from people who were close to Ann, from cast members and choreographers to dear friends. Our hope is that through the Friends of Annie Series, we can emphasize the impact Ann had on her community and create a living legacy of memories in her honor.

Jerry Mitchell is a Tony Award Winning Director and Choreographer. Below he shares his memories of working with Ann Reinking in 1985 inĀ The Music Moves Me.
