Wednesday, December 8
Think "choreography" and, if dance has ever been of any interest to you, at the very least these four names will come to mind: Martha Graham, Twyla Tharp, George Balanchine and Bob Fosse. Those names cover the world of dance from modern to jazz to ballet to the smorgasbord of styles that make up a Broadway show. Fosse, a dancer, choreographer and director, is best known for his Broadway hits Chicago, Damn Yankees and Sweet Charity and films Cabaret and All That Jazz. The man was the first director in history to win Oscar, Tony and Emmy awards. "Fosse stars" Gwen Verdon and Ann Reinking collaborated to bring back Fosse's best choreography in Fosse, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals Broadway Contemporary Series. The production runs through December 12 with 8 p.m. shows each day and 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday at the Majestic Theatre, 1925 Elm St. Tickets are $17 to $70 so an audience member can get a little "Steam Heat" without being a "Big Spender." Call 214-631-ARTS.
