About Bob Fosse's Dancin' on Broadway

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.

Put on your dancin' shoes and sashay on over to the Music Box Theatre for Bob Fosse's Dancin', an electrifying tribute to the iconic choreographer's career. Set an alert for Bob Fosse's Dancin' tickets on TodayTix.

Bob Fosse's Dancin' is a musical, but not a traditional musical. It's two and a half hours of dancing in every style you can think of, set to songs in an equally diverse number of genres. There's a little dialogue, but most of the storytelling, structured as a series of vignettes rather than one long story, occurs through movement. Fosse choreographed the whole show himself for its original 1978 run, and all his original choreography remains for the revival production.

The premiere production of Bob Fosse's Dancin' in New York (then just called Dancin') received seven Tony nominations and won two, including Best Choreography. That was one of eight times Fosse won that award; he's also won for shows including Pippin, Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity, and The Pajama Game.

During his career, he choreographed in lots of different styles, as showcased in Bob Fosse's Dancin' on Broadway, but he's known for coining his own distinct style of jazz, with sharp jazz hands and angular movements. Two shows he didn't get nominated for — Chicago and Cabaret — still remain his best-known works featuring choreography in that sultry style.

What to Watch For

  • Three members of the the original 1978 company of Dancin' are involved in the current Broadway revival: director Wayne Cilento, who got a Tony nomination for his 1978 performance; Christine Colby Jacques, who reproduced Fosse's choreography for the revival; and Kirsten Childs, who updated the script for 2023.
  • Cilento has also choreographed more than 10 Broadway shows, including a little musical called Wicked. Have you heard of it?
  • Good dancin' never seemed so good! Neil Diamond currently has his own Broadway musical, A Beautiful Noise, but his song "Crunchy Granola Suite" is also featured in Bob Fosse's Dancin'.
  • Bob Fosse's Dancin' also includes a few songs from other musicals, including Gypsy's "Let Me Entertain You" and Sweet Charity's "Big Spender."
  • Dancin' isn't the only dance revue dedicated to Fosse; one called Fosse opened in 1999. That one was more of a tribute, as it was created after the choreographer's death, whereas Fosse himself created Dancin'.
