Summary

Summary

This Broadway stage tribute to the man behind the brilliant, seductive choreography of Cabaret, Chicago, Sweet Charity, and Damn Yankees took Broadway by storm in January of 1999 and racked up several awards. Ann Reinking and Ben Vereen head an all-star cast performing Fosse standards "Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries," "Steam Heat," "Mein Herr," and "Big Spender," demonstrating why Bob Fosse's physically exuberant choreography still sets the standard for the musicals today, ten years after his death. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
