This is an amazing show- a treat for those of us who live isolated from Broadway. 'Fosse' in an affectionate and lively tribute to the great choreographer and director that presents an irrefutable argument for his genius. Working with many of his original collaborators we see restagings of classic moments from Fosse's stage and film work including the most popular and well known works like Cabaret, Chicago and Sweet Charity. The stage show translates to DVD extremely well, itself tribute to Fosse's attention to detail. The raunchier aspects of Fosse's work sit beside moments of subtle emotion and we are treated to an incredible selection of Broadway show-stoppers. Fosse veterans Anne Reinking [who also directs] and Ben Vereen dominate the screen but ultimately it is Fosse's ghost that steals the show. A compact history of some of the best Broadway singing and dancing of the late twentieth century and sure to impress even the most jaded viewer.
