At one point in her memoir, Pazcoguin accused repertory director Jean-Pierre Frohlich of dropping a 'crazy bomb' while they were rehearsing for Jerome Robbins' The Concert, the New York Times reports.
She said that Frohlich told the dancers to imagine spring and how women walk 'around in tank tops and short dresses, shorts.'
Pazcoguin claims Frohlich then said: 'It's amazing more women aren't raped these days.'
Frohlich would not comment on the allegation.
