Everyone knows about Bob Fosse and his numerous hit musicals that continue to enthrall the world today. However, what you might not know is that one of his most famous works was slightly based on his real life experiences. That work is Chicago and Fosse would have had plenty of experience in the city of the same name, as he lived there for most of his childhood and young adult years, until he was 17.
It is said that every single dance move that Fosse ever performed (he was an extremely talented dancer as well as a director/producer) was inspired by his life in the city. This theme is prominently seen in a new biographic book of Bob Fosse that is due to be released this week.
The book, simply called “Fosse” and is written by Sam Wasson, details everything about the legendary figure’s life, particularly his early years. Fosse was born in 1927 and was the son of a failed vaudevillian performer and a one-time opera extra. He first began to hone his skills as a dancer at the Chicago Academy of Theater Arts when he was 7 years old.
The young Fosse took tap and ballet lessons at the famous institution and its influence can be seen in his dances. Fosse and his partner Charlie Grass formed a group called the Riff Brothers which saw some success. Later, Fosse would become a solo act, a dancing MC who delighted audiences. All this and more of his past will be revealed in the book.
There’s a Fosse show playing each and every day somewhere in the world. His hit show, Chicago and Pippin are still hits on Broadway.
