Hot on the heels of the April 9 premiere of Fosse/Verdon, FX has released a teaser for the second episode for the new series that follows the onstage and off-stage story of Broadway powerhouses Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon.
Titled, “Who's Got The Pain?,” episode two dramatizes Fosse and Verdon’s first meeting during a pre-production dance rehearsal for Damn Yankees. Fresh off his Tony win for The Pajama Game, the ambitious dancer-choreographer creates a slow-burn strip tease for Verdon to perform as Lola in Broadway’s new baseball musical. Verdon, an established Broadway star and recent Tony winner for Can-Can, matches Fosse serve for serve as their relationship ignites.
Watch the teaser above.
“Who’s Got the Pain?” will air April 16 at 10 PM.
Oscar winner Sam Rockwell and Oscar and Tony nominee Michelle Williams star as Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, respectively, with several additional stage names playing Broadway luminaries in the exploration of the glitz, glam, and grit of theatre in the 1950s–1970s.
The series hails from executive producer Lin-Manuel Miranda, director (and Miranda's Hamilton cohort) Thomas Kail, Dear Evan Hansen scribe Steven Levenson (who also serves as showrunner), and Fosse and Verdon's daughter Nicole Fosse.
