Bob Fosse’s Dancin’
Bob Fosse’s Dancin’ is Fosse’s full-throated, full-bodied celebration of the art form he loved and perfected… and then changed forever. Utterly reimagined for the 21st century by director Wayne Cilento – who starred in the original Broadway production – this Dancin’ brims with a level of warmth, emotion, and color rarely seen in modern interpretations of Fosse’s influential style, and features some of his most inventive and seldom performed choreography. With a cast of New York’s hottest dancers and an eclectic score of songs selected by Fosse, Dancin’ delivers the quintessential Broadway experience for Fosse fans and first-timers alike. You think you’ve seen dancing, but you’ve never seen Dancin’ like this!
