Sam Rockwell and the Pie Face
9 June 2019 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Behind the scenes look at the relationship between Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse focuses on the minutiae of their daily lives with the Broadway shows and movies they made playing in the background.

Sam Rockwell is brilliant as Fosse, the obsessive and self-destructive dancer, choreographer and director who shot to stardom for his work in SWEET CHARITY, CABARET, CHICAGO, LENNY, and DAMN YANKEES. Lumpy Michelle Williams is much less successful playing the lithe Verdon, a brilliant dancer who ranked as a major musical star on Broadway in the 1950s and won four Tony awards to prove it. She won for CAN-CAN, REDHEAD, NEW GIRL IN TOWN, and DAMN YANKEES.

As her career takes a back seat to motherhood and Fosse's burgeoning career in the 1960s, Verdon struggles on stage with a flop straight play and two hits shows--SWEET CHARITY and CHICAGO spread out over ten years. FOSSE ricochets from movies to television to Broadway despite drug abuse, mental issues, and bad health.

Their lives are littered with extra-marital relationships and bitterness despite the successes. Aside from Verdon, Fosse was married to dancer Joan McCracken and had long relationships with Carol Haney and Ann Reinking as well.

Among their show-biz pals are Neil Simon and his dying wife Joan, writer Paddy Chayesfsky, Hal Prince, Liza Minnelli, George Abbott, and song-writers Kander and Ebb.

The episode set on Long Island in the rain is especially long and boring, though the series has its moments.
