FINDING FOSSE AT VIDEO UNIVERSE
I went back to Video Universe for a new monthly series. This time I’m after some Bob Fosse, the legendary choreographer/director of Cabaret. He won the Oscar for Best Director beating Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather. That same year he won the Emmy for his concert/documentary Liza with a Z and won the Tony for directing Pippin on Broadway.
Fosse and his wife and frequent collaborator, Gwen Verdon, are the subject of the new FX mini-series, Fosse/Verdon, premiering April 9th with Oscar winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Fosse and four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams with Verdon. Williams makes her big return to television for the first time after her successful run on Dawson’s Creek. If you love Broadway history, film history, or the vintage video store, stop into Video Universe in Robbinsdale, MN for a little knowledge on Fosse’s work before the mini-series starts.
