    Fosse was born in Chicago, Illi­nois, on June 23, 1927, to a Nor­we­gian Amer­i­can fa­ther, Cyril K. Fosse, a trav­el­ing sales­man for The Her­shey Com­pany,and Irish-born mother, Sara Alice Fosse (née Stan­ton), the fifth of six children. When he was 13 years old, Fosse per­formed in Greater Chicago with Charles Grass, under the name The Riff Brothers. After being re­cruited dur­ing World War II, Fosse was placed in the va­ri­ety show Tough Situation which toured mil­i­tary and naval bases in the Pa­cific. After the war, Fosse moved to New York City with the am­bi­tion of being the new Fred As­taire. His first stage role was in Call Me Mis­ter, where he met his first wife and dance part­ner, Mary Ann Niles (1923–1987). Fosse and Niles were reg­u­lar per­form­ers on Your Hit Pa­rade in its 1950-51 sea­son. Dean Mar­tin and Jerry Lewis caught their act in New York's Pierre Hotel and sched­uled the cou­ple to ap­pear on the Col­gate Com­edy Hour. In a 1986 in­ter­view Fosse told an...

    Stage productions

    Dur­ing the late 1940s and early 1950s, Fosse tran­si­tioned from film to the­ater. In 1954, he chore­o­graphed his first mu­si­cal, The Pa­jama Game, fol­lowed by George Ab­bott's Damn Yan­kees in 1955. It was while work­ing on Damn Yan­kees that he first met ris­ing star Gwen Ver­don, whom he mar­ried in 1960. For her work in Damn Yankees, Ver­don won her first Tony Award for Best Ac­tress in a Mu­si­cal in 1956. She had pre­vi­ously won a Tony for Best Per­for­mance by a Fea­tured Ac­tress...


    In 1957 Fosse chore­o­graphed the film ver­sion of The Pa­jama Game star­ring Doris Day. The next year, Fosse ap­peared in and chore­o­graphed the film ver­sion of Damn Yan­keesin which Ver­don reprised her stage tri­umph as the char­ac­ter Lola. Fosse and Ver­don were part­ners in the mambo num­ber "Who's Got the Pain". Fosse di­rected five fea­ture films. His first, Sweet Char­ity (1969) star­ring Shirley MacLaine, is an adap­ta­tion of the Broad­way mu­si­cal he had di­rected and chore­o­g...

    No­table dis­tinc­tions of Fosse's style in­cluded the use of turned-in knees, the "Fosse Amoeba", side­ways shuf­fling, rolled shoul­ders and jazz hands. With As­taire as an in­flu­ence, Fosse used props such as bowler hats, canes and chairs. His trade­mark use of hats was in­flu­enced by his own self-con­scious­ness, ac­cord­ing to Mar­tin Got­tfried in his bi­og­ra­phy of Fosse, "His bald­ness was the rea­son that he wore hats, and was doubt­less why he put hats on his dancers." Fosse used gloves in his per­for­mances be­cause he did not like his hands. Some of his most pop­u­lar num­bers in­clude "Steam Heat" (The Pa­jama Game) and "Big Spender" (Sweet Char­ity). The "Rich Man's Frug" scene in Sweet Charityis an­other ex­am­ple of his sig­na­ture style. For Damn Yankees, Fosse was in­spired by the "fa­ther of the­atri­cal jazz dance", Jack Cole. In 1957, Ver­don and Fosse stud­ied with San­ford Meis­ner to de­velop a bet­ter act­ing tech­nique. Ac­cord­ing to Michael Joosten, Fo...

    Fosse mar­ried dance part­ner Mary Ann Niles (1923–1987) on May 3, 1947 in De­troit. In 1952, a year after he di­vorced Niles, he mar­ried dancer Joan Mc­Cracken in New York City;this mar­riage lasted until 1959, when it ended in divorce. His third wife was dancer and ac­tress Gwen Ver­don. In 1963, they had a daugh­ter, Nicole Fosse, who later be­came a dancer and ac­tress. Fosse's ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fairs put a strain on the mar­riage and by 1971 they were sep­a­rated, al­though they re­mained legally mar­ried until his death in 1987. Ver­don never remarried. Fosse met dancer Ann Reink­ing dur­ing the run of Pip­pin. Ac­cord­ing to Reink­ing, their ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship ended "to­ward the end of the run of Dancin'." Fosse was spo­rad­i­cally linked with ac­tress Jes­sica Langein the 1970s. Dur­ing re­hearsals for The Con­quer­ing Hero in 1961 Fosse was re­vealed to have epilepsywhen he suf­fered a seizure onstage.

    Fosse died of a heart at­tack on Sep­tem­ber 23, 1987, at George Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal while the re­vival of Sweet Charity was open­ing at the nearby Na­tional The­atre. He had col­lapsed in Ver­don's arms on the side­walk out­side the Willard Hotel. As he had re­quested, Ver­don and Nicole Fosse scat­tered his ashes in the At­lantic Ocean off Quogue, Long Is­land, where Fosse had been liv­ing with his girl­friend of four years.

    At the 1973 Acad­emy Awards, Fosse won the Acad­emy Award for Best Di­rec­tor for Cabaret. That same year he won Tony Awards for di­rect­ing and chore­o­graph­ing Pip­pin and Prime­time Emmy Awards for pro­duc­ing, chore­o­graph­ing and di­rect­ing Liza Min­nelli's tele­vi­sion spe­cial Liza with a Z. He is the only per­son to win all three major in­dus­try awards in the same year. Acad­emy Awards Tony Awards Prime­time Emmy Awards Golden Globe Awards BAFTA Awards Drama Desk Awards Cannes Film Festival Di­rec­tors Guild Awards

    Fosse was in­ducted into the Na­tional Mu­seum of Dance in Saratoga Springs, New York on April 27, 2007. The Los An­ge­les Dance Awards, founded in 1994, were called the "Fosse Awards", and are now called the Amer­i­can Chore­og­ra­phy Awards. The Bob Fosse-Gwen Ver­don Fel­low­ship was es­tab­lished by their daugh­ter, Nicole Fosse, in 2003 at the Alvin Ailey Amer­i­can Dance The­ater. Reink­ing and Ver­don kept Fosse's unique chore­og­ra­phy alive after his death. Reink­ing played the role of Roxie Hart in the New York re­vival of Chicago, which opened in 1996. She chore­o­graphed the dances in Fosse style for that re­vival. In 1999, Ver­don served as artis­tic con­sul­tant on a Broad­way mu­si­cal de­signed to show­case ex­am­ples of clas­sic Fosse chore­og­ra­phy. Called sim­ply Fosse, the three-act mu­si­cal revue was con­ceived and di­rected by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Reink­ing, and chore­o­graphed by Reink­ing and Chet Walker.

    Rođen je kao Robert Louis Fosse u Chicagu u obitelji Norvežanina i Irkinje kao najmlađe od šestero djece. Nakon mature, udružio se s Charlesom Grassom, još jednim mladim plesačem, i počeo suradnju pod imenom, The Rift Brothers. Nastupali su po kazalištima diljem Chicaga. Fosse je angažiran za show Tough Situation, koji se održavao u vojnim i mornaričkim bazama u Pacifiku. Kasnije je rekao kako je tijekom te turneje usavršio svoje performerske, koreografske i redateljske vještine. Preselio se u Hollywood s ambicijom da bude novi Fred Astaire. Prvi filmski nastupi bili su mu u filmovima poput Give Girl A Break, The Affairs of Dobie Gillisi Kiss Me, Kate, svi objavljeni 1953. U posljednjem je izradio koreografiju za kratku sekvencu, što je privuklo pozornost producenata s Broadwaya. Iako je Fosseova karijera na filmu neplanirano završena ranim gubitkom kose, što je ograničilo uloge koje je mogao dobiti, nevoljko se preselio iz Hollywooda u kazalište. 1954. je izradio koreografiju za sv...

    Fosse je prvo bio oženjen plesačicom Mary Ann Niles, zatim s plesačicom Joan McCraken od 1951. do 1959., a nakon toga je oženio plesačicu Gwen Verdon, 1960. Dobili su jednu kćer, Nicole Providence Fosse, koja je također plesačica. U sedamdesetima se rastao od Gwen, ali su ostali u braku do njegove smrti. U međuvremenu je bio u vezi s Ann Reinking i Jessicom Lange.

    Fosse je bio inovativan koreograf koji je postigao mnoga dostignuća u svom životu. Tijekom The Pajama Game, Fosse je publici pokazao ključni element svoje koreografije, nešto što je smatrao krucijalnim: element iznenađenja. Za Damn Yankees, Fosse je inspiraciju pokupio od "oca američkog jazz plesa", Jacka Colea. Na njega je utjecaj izvršio i Jerome Robbins. Tijekom mjuzikla Redhead, Fosse je uveo jednu od prvih baletnih sekvenci u predstavi koja je sadržavala pet različitih plesnih stilova; Fosseov jazz, can-can, romski ples, koračnicu i stari engleski dvoranski broj. The Conquering Heroje bio Fosseov najizazovniji komad. Tijekom showa je objavljeno da Fosse ima epilepsiju jer je imao napadaj na pozornici tijekom probe. Njegov uspjeh se, međutim, nastavio i nakon toga, a on je i dalje unosio inovacije u svijet brodwayske koreografije. Uveo je trend osvjetljivanja kako bi skrenuo pozornost publike na određene stvari. On i Verdon 1957. radili su s Sanfordom Meisnerom kako razvili bolj...

    Fosse je za svoj rad zaradio mnoge nagrade, uključujući nagrade Tony za Pippina i Sweet Charity, Oscar za Cabaret i Emmyja za Liza sa "Z". On je bio prva osoba koja je osvojila sve tri nagrade u istoj godini (1973.). Njegov poluautobiografski film, Sav taj jazz (1979.), osvojio je Zlatnu palmu. Prikazuje strastvenog pušača koji podliježe svojim radoholičarskim navikama. Revija Fosse osvojila je nagradu Tony za najbolji mjuzikl, a 2001.njemu (zajedno s Ann Reinking) Nagradu Laurence Olivier za najbolju kazališnu koreografiju. Dokumenatarac Billa Henryja o Fosseovom radu iz 1990., produciran za PBS-ovu seriju Dance in America: Great Performances, osvojio je Emmyja te godine. Interes za Fosseov rad oživio je nakon ponovnih postavljanja njegovih djela i filma Chicago (2002.). Koreografija Roba Marshalla za film oponaša Fosseov stil, ali izbjegava specifične tehnike iz originala.

    The first idea for Fosse was conceived by Chet Walker, who was in many of Bob Fosse's shows and served as dance captain. Walker began workshops in New York City, where he hired numerous dancers to begin the process of putting the numerous pieces of choreography on its feet. Livent, a Canadian-based theatrical production company, was the producer of workshops and also the pre-Broadway tour. Fosse started its tour in Toronto. A two-month rehearsal period was held at The National Ballet of Canada s
