Ann Reinking, the choreographer who helped create and develop Fosse, will walk the walk when she steps into the Tony Award-winning musical revue at the Broadhurst Theatre, March 2-April 1. Dancer Reinking was a longtime favorite of director-choreographer Bob Fosse, and appeared in a featured role is his popular revue, Dancin'. She'll share the stage with Ben Vereen, a Fosse veteran from Pippin and "All That Jazz," who joined the Fosse Broadway troupe Jan. 26.
Reinking, linked personally and professionally to Fosse, co-directed Fosse with Richard Maltby Jr. and also co-choreographed the show (and has co-conception credit). She also choreographed (and starred in) the 1996 revival of Chicago, now at the Shubert Theatre. She staged the Chicago numbers "in the style of" Fosse, who created the original production in 1975. Several numbers from Chicago are seen in Fosse.
It was not immediately clear what role (or "track") she will be playing in Fosse, which won the Best Musical Tony Award in 1999.
