Showtune Sunday: All About Gwen Verdon!
Watched the first four episodes of Fosse/Verdon on FX last night am was just mesmerized by the Emmy-caliber performance by Michelle Williams as the late, great Gwen Verdon.
Miss Verdon was a four-time Tony winner best-known for Damn Yankees!, Chicago, Sweet Charity, Can-Can., and many other shows. But her accomplishments eventually were overshadowed by those of her last husband, Bob Fosse.
This miniseries gives Miss Verdon, who died in 2000 at age 75, her due for her onstage accomplishments but also her behind-the-scenes work with Fosse.
Here are some Verdon performances from over the years. Enjoy!
