Dancer/ Choreographer Bob Fosse was born on this day in 1927. Among his accomplishments are classics of both stage and screen. He won eight Tony awards for his choreography in shows like The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, and Sweet Charity. The Broadway revival of Chicago, for which Fosse co-wrote the book, holds the record for the longest musical revival in the history of the Great White Way. Fosse also proved to be a remarkable film director, shaping Oscar-winning performances by Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey in Cabaret. The Music Division is home to the Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon Collection, which documents the long professional and personal collaboration of two musical theater legends.
