Start your warm-up stretches and cue the jazz hands—the official trailer for Fosse/Verdon is here, and it’ll catapult you to one the most notable times in Broadway history.
Days after releasing a new teaser, FX Networks debuted the two-minute trailer for the limited series that follows Broadway icons Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. The video features provocative dancing, jazz hands, and signature choreography from some of musical theater’s most iconic numbers such as Cabaret and Chicago.
The trailer also shows the evolution of the partnership between director/choreographer Fosse and actress/dancer Verdon. Viewers will discover the origin of their romantic relationship and the complications that corrupted it—like Fosse’s extramarital affairs.
Fosse/Verdon will show the highs and lows that spanned five decades while telling the story of “two brilliant, complicated individuals – the love they shared, the art they created, and the price they paid in the pursuit of greatness,” according to FX.
Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams co-star as Fosse and Verdon. Rockwell, Williams, Thomas Kail, Steven Levenson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Joel Fields, and George Stelzner are executive producers of the limited series that is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Fosse/Verdon takes center stage April 9 on FX.
