"Jimmy had an amazing gift which--because I was put off by the mixture of camp and balleticism in his work--I didn't appreciate until much later. His company was full of misfits. They wre too short or too fat or too uncoordinated or too mannered or too inexperienced by any other standards. He had this gift of choosing people who "couldn't do too much" in conventional technical terms but who, under his subtle directorial manipulations, revealed spectacular stage personalities. He could pull the silk purse out of the sow's ear." --Yvonne Rainer. Feelings are Facts: A Life. Cambridge: MIT Press, 2006.
