Bob Fosse's Dancin' on Broadway Information
A revival of Bob Fosse's Dancin' is leaping, shuffling, and turning its way into New York after a pre-Broadway tryout in San Diego. The revival preserves Fosse's original Tony-winning choreography. Check back for Bob Fosse's Dancin' tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
Bob Fosse's Dancin' is a musical revue that pays tribute to various dance and musical styles. There is no plot or singing, just a company of dancers — 16 in the revival — performing two hours of awe-inspiring dance to music from classical to jazz to pop to operetta, and more. Multiple dance genres are represented, too, all with Fosse's angular, alluring, energetic flair.
Though the choreography remains the same from 1978, when the show (then just called Dancin') first premiered on Broadway, this revival gives the production a modern refresh, celebrating a fuller history of dance including its evolution since then.
Dancin' on Broadway first played at the Broadhurst Theatre, then transferred to the Ambassador Theatre, playing for 1,774 total performances. Dancin' was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Fosse won Best Choreography, and Jules Fisher won for Best Lighting Design. The original company was led by Ann Reinking, a frequent collaborator of Fosse's who starred in his musical Chicago and later choreographed the current revival of that show in his style.
Cilento was also part of that original run of Dancin' in New York; he received a Tony nomination for his performance. He directed the world premiere of the Bob Fosse's Dancin' revival at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre in spring 2022 and now directs its Broadway transfer.
Who is Bob Fosse?
Bob Fosse changed the face of Broadway choreography. He's won eight Tony Awards for choreography on shows including Damn Yankees, Redhead, Sweet Charity, and The Pajama Game. Kander and Ebb's Cabaret and Chicago remain two of his most iconic shows; Fosse's name and choreography are as closely linked with those hit musicals as its songwriters are. He also directed and co-wrote multiple of his shows (like Chicago), and his legacy has been immortalized in countless other works like the TV miniseries Fosse/Verdon and Fosse, another dance revue.
Bob Fosse's Dancin' tickets will be available soon.
