Synopsis

We see Bob Fosses legacy everywherefrom Broadway to Billy Jean to Beyoncs moves in the Single Ladies video. Yet in spite of Fosses deep cultural significance, no biography has ever brought him fully to life, unveiling the man behind the bowler hat and the swaggering sex appeal. Now acclaimed cultural historian Sam Wasson traces Fosses numberless reinventions of himself over a career that would spawn The Pajama Game, Cabaret, Pippin, Chicago, All That Jazz, and other iconic works of art and earn him Tonys, Emmys, and an Oscar. Wasson traces not only Fosses prodigious professional life but his intense relationships with everyone from Liza Minnelli, Fred Astaire, and Neil Simon to Shirley MacLaine, Jessica Lange, and Dustin Hoffman. Through extensive interviews with collaborators and lovers and unprecedented access to Fosses archives, Wasson also reveals the deep wounds that propelled his subjects excessive appetitesfor spotlights, women, and life itself. In Fosse, Wassons stylish, effervescent prose proves the ideal vehicle for reanimating Bob Fosse as he truly wasafter hours, close up, and in vibrant color.
