Great Performances

Dance In America: from Broadway -- Fosse (#2706)

With a theatrical and cinematic legacy that includes "Damn Yankees," "The Pajama Game," "Sweet Charity," "Pippin," "Cabaret," "Chicago" and "Dancin'," the genius of Bob Fosse will always cast a long shadow over Broadway and Hollywood. Winner of the 1999 Tony Award for "Best Musical," the all-dancing, all-singing Fosse was created by those who worked most closely with him, including co-director and co-choreographer Ann Reinking and Fosse's wife, the late Gwen Verdon. Now, in a PBS Showcase event, DANCE IN AMERICA presents the award-winning musical starring Reinking and Ben Vereen, recorded live in performance from Broadway. Celebrating Fosse's brilliance with the most important dance numbers from his greatest shows, movies and early television work, "From Broadway -- Fosse" is a show-stopping tribute to one of the past century's most influential forces on Broadway.
