Bob Fosse’s Dancin’ is a Non-Stop, Breathtaking Wonder


Jack Pasquale

Bob Fosse’s Dancin’ shines a bright light on the choreography and dancers that make Broadway the global destination for top talent and entertainment that it is known for. The pulsating, non-stop production showcases 22 of Broadway’s best dancers, and introduces a new generation to the works of influential choreographer Bob Fosse. This is a must see show!


The original Dancin’ opened on Broadway in March of 1978 and enjoyed a 1,774-performance run. The production was nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, and earned Bob Fosse his seventh Tony win for Best Choreography. 


Bob Fosse won an unprecedented eight Tony Awards over four decades for Choreography (The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Redhead, Little Me, Sweet Charity, Pippin, Dancin’, Big Deal), plus one for stage direction (Pippin). In 1973, Fosse won The Academy Award for his direction of the film version of Cabaret, and became the only director to win the “triple crown” – The Oscar (Cabaret), Tony Award (Pippin), and Emmy (Liza with a Z) — all in the same year.


The current production of Bob Fosse’s Dancin is directed by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento, one of the stars of the original Broadway production, and produced in cooperation with Nicole Fosse, Bob Fosse’s daughter.
