MFAH Artful Thursday Lecture: "Fosse"

eventdetail

Fosse — a giant name in choreography and film. Bob Fosse (1927–1987) began his career aspiring to become the next Fred Astaire and extended what had become "traditional dance"— including the use of props such as bowler hats, canes and chairs — by introducing new vocabulary such as turned-in knees, sideways shuffling, rolled shoulders and jazz hands. Fosse's numerous awards include Tonys for Pippin and Sweet Charity, an Oscar for Cabaret and an Emmy for Liza with a "Z." Behind Fosse's artistic success was a rocky personal life.

Join biographer Sam Wasson for a crash course on Fosse's famous demons, angels, women, ambitions, failures (self-proclaimed and otherwise) and everything else Fosse put into the autobiographical masterpiece All That Jazz.
