Is there anything theater buffs love more than drama? Drama that breaks out in an eight-count, perhaps. Fans of either variety will want to tune into Fosse/Verdon for a thrilling depiction of musical history.
Fosse/Verdon follows the personal and professional relationship of two cultural legends: Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse. A four-time Tony award-winning actress and dancer, Verdon is known for originating both Chicago‘s Roxie Hart and Lola in Damn Yankees. Fosse, a household name in the theater world, was an iconic choreographer and director who won an Academy Award for his direction of Cabaret. Fosse met Verdon while choreographing Damn Yankees and together, the duo was an unstoppable, accredited creative force—at a detrimental cost to their personal lives, it turned out.
The eight-episode features the equally legendary Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, The Greatest Showman) and Sam Rockwell (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) playing the roles of Verdon and Fosse. Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Thomas Kail, as well as Dear Evan Hansen’s Steven Levenson, are executive producers on the project, so you can bet on it being quality entertainment.
