Biography Of Director Bob Fosse Razzles, Dazzles And Delights
by Bob Mondello
November 07, 2013
the director’s dark stage imagery mirrored his own life — … the amphetamines that kept him going, and the barbiturates that calmed him when he lost confidence in his own “razzle-dazzle.”
Wasson pictures him as harder on himself than he was on his dancers. In one year, he won a directing triple crown for which no one else had ever even been nominated — An Emmy for Liza With A Z, an Oscar for Cabaret and a Tony for Pippin. And his reaction was utter depression. But out of that depression came Chicago … a musical vaudeville that looked great at the Tony Awards in 1976.
Fosse is filled with … vivid descriptions that turn the research into a sort of movie in your head.
