The hot, three-act Broadway musical revue, Fosse, is following in the footsteps of its national-touring cousin and trimming its second intermission to a mere three-minute pause, beginning Jan. 25.

Musicians, audience and dancers all seem to like the streamlining on the road, according to a spokesman, so the idea is being instituted at the Broadhurst Theatre, where the 1999 Best Musical Tony Award-winner has been holed up for a year now, playing to solid houses.

Unlike the touring version, which eliminated "Shoeless Joe," "Hot Honey Rag" and "Nowadays" from the songlist, the entire Tony-winning presentation is maintained in New York.

The revue celebrates dances and staging created by legendary Bob Fosse, who choreographed and/or directed The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity, Pippin, Chicago, Big Deal, Dancin' and the films "All That Jazz" and "Cabaret," among other projects.

The three-act musical, co-directed by Richard Maltby Jr. and Ann Reinking, has a 10-minute intermission between acts one and two, and the new "pause" between acts two and three.
