Fosse. Bob Fosse was a true game changer. When he came onto the cinema scene as a dancer, his style was unlike anyone that had been seen before. His choreography was first seen in a small sequence of "From This Moment On" in the 1953 film "Kiss Me, Kate." It's evident that his choreographic style was atypical from the traditional style of the day. He went on to be one of the most influential choreographers and directors of his time winning eight Tonys, an Oscar for his direction of "Cabaret" and an Emmy for "Liza with a Z."
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
