Scope and arrangement
Marsicano's choreographic notes consist of charts, dancer lists, and sketches describing six of her works. Edits and cut materials are included, and one can discern how each work evolved. She does not always differentiate between drafts. Often pages hold one individual idea or movement for the dance in question, without noting where in the piece the idea appeared.
The bulk of her correspondence is with two friends - the composer Edwin Hymovitz and Philadelphia native Howard Billman. These folders hold letters written by Marsicano to Hymovitz and Billman. She discusses the difficulty and hardship in dealing with the creative process and her husband's struggles as an artist. The remainder of the letters are from various individuals to Marsicano, such as former dancers and her niece, Wendy Oser.
There are two notebooks filled with inspirational quotes and lists of books that Marsicano was interested in obtaining, as well as press clippings, a small selection of posters and programs, and writings.
