Synopsis

Choreographer Bob Fosse was one of the most influential, renowned, and celebrated American theatre artists of the 20th century. His career, spanning nearly four decades, included groundbreaking works of theatre, dance, and film, earning Fosse eight Tony Awards for choreography and an Academy Award for Best Director. Fosse’s innovative and utterly unique style of dance--jazz hands, turned-in knees, bowler hats, gloves--has become a cornerstone of modern musical theatre. Fosse, created by his closest associates and friends, is a celebration of the great artist’s work. Fosse’s original choreography from 13 of his shows is recreated, continuing the legacy of one of the greatest musical theatre artists of all time.
