I want this Leiber-Stoller musical to exist!

From a lovely NYT remembrance of Jerry Leiber who died on Aug. 22nd. RIP.

"They wanted to write an original show, and had lots of ideas — ideas that seemed amazing to me, if often somewhat unrealistic. One was for a full-length ballet about a high fashion mannequin who comes to life in a department store window after witnessing a shooting and leads an all night chase through the streets of Manhattan in search of the trigger man, only to end up back in the window, immobilized, the crime still unsolved."
