On June 23, 1927…

…Bob Fosse — dancer, choreographer, screenwriter and director (of both theater and film) — was born.  He won 8 Tony Awards for choreography (as well as winning one for directing), was nominated for 4 Oscars, and won one — for directing Cabaret

Cabaret is a must see, and we have it in our DVD section:

All That Jazz is also a necessary watch — it’s semi-autobiographical and it won four Oscars, was nominated for five others, as well as winning and being nominated for a pile of others (We don’t have this one, but we will shortly — I’ll add it to my next DVD order!):

A couple of other clips:

“Steam Heat”, from The Pajama Game:

And “Big Spender” from Sweet Charity:

As always, if you would like to place a hold, please call the library at 985-2173 or visit our website.
