‘Bob Fosse’s Dancin’' returns to Broadway 45 years after its debut

Forty-five years after it debuted on Broadway, "Bob Fosse's Dancin'" has stepped back onto the stage.
Unusual for a theatrical show, the musical has no plot, but rather is a collection of choreographed scenes built around specific songs. It is styled more as a revue than a traditional musical.
Dance is the star of the show. Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento performed in the original 1978 Broadway production. He is directing this first Broadway revival, and says he wants audiences to rediscover Fosse’s choreography.
"I wanted to show the variety of who that man was, as a dancer, as a being. How he loved dance and choreography," says Cilento.
Cast members also are hoping for an appreciation of how Fosse incorporated many genres of dance – such as jazz, tap, modern and others - into his distinct style.
"You see the body of work that he was capable of creating in his career even though he left us so soon," says cast member Manuel Herrera, whose role includes singing a solo of "Mr. Bojangles" in the first act.
Fosse died in 1987 at the age of 60.
