Producer Joey Parnes announced today that Bob Fosse’s DANCIN’, the American showbusiness legend’s landmark musical tribute to the artform that defined his life, will return to Broadway 41 years after the original smash-hit production took its final bow. DANCIN’ will begin previews at The Music Box Theatre on Thursday, March 2, 2023, with opening night set for Sunday, March 19, 2023.
The production will be directed by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento, one of the stars of the original Broadway production, and produced in cooperation with Nicole Fosse.
DANCIN’ is Fosse’s full-throated, full-bodied celebration of dancers and dancing. Utterly reimagined for the 21st century, this DANCIN’ brims with a level of warmth, emotion, and color seldom seen in modern interpretations of Fosse’s influential style and features some of his most inventive and rarely performed choreography. With New York’s hottest cast performing 120 minutes of wall-to-wall dance, DANCIN’ delivers the quintessential Broadway experience for Fosse fans and first-timers alike. You think you’ve seen dancing, but you’ve never seen DANCIN’ like this.
“Bob achieved immortality through his work, and I consider it both the responsibility and honor of my life to steward his legacy for a new generation” said Wayne Cilento, “none of Bob’s shows exemplified the fullness of his spirit quite like DANCIN’ and bringing it back in this fresh way is how I hope to keep that spirit alive.”
Nicole Fosse added: “My father was always ahead of the times with his fingers on the pulse of current culture. I am very proud of this team that will honor his legacy.”...READ MORE
