    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIAfter reviewing the entertaining FX miniseries FosseVerdon a month ago I became very curious about the book the show was based on Sam Wasson’s biography of the legendary director and choreographer Bob Fosse I’m glad I read it even though carrying the thick brick of a book around practically dislocated my shoulderI’ve always loved what I’d seen of Fosse’s work the film version of Cabaret arguably the best movie musical ever made; the sleek sexy long running revival of Chicago with choreography “in the style of Bob Fosse” by Fosse’s former protégé and then girlfriend Ann Reinking; and the self indulgent but b

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIOne of the biggest problems with a book about a dancerchoreographer is that no matter how colourful the descriptions and Wasson REALLY likes description you can’t see the performances I found myself going over and over again to YouTube to look for clips so that I could actually see what was being described I almost wished that this had been done as a documentary rather than a written biographyMy background – in addition to writing – is in theatre and my love for Broadway knows no limits and so I’ve been a fan of Bob Fosse’s work and his style for years Yet it amazed me how much I didn’t know the projects he worked on that I hadn’t heard of; the projects he worked on and then abandoned; and especially the heart of a performer who wanted to be a star and had to settle for being a star choreographer som

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIIn some ways I think I know the author of Fosse Sam Wasson about as well as he wants us to know the mercurial obsessed geniusfraudfriendlovermotherfucker that apparently was Bob Fosse As much as Fosse possessed others in his ceaseless search for art through love or was it love through art? Wasson is eually obsessed with his subject seemingly trying to creep into his skin to bring us as well to be co inhabitants with him so that he and we trudge merrily along through the emotional wreckage of Fosse's life He often succeeds in letting us inside this very complex artist but I would have wished for of the journalist's or historian's craft in writing this story Example the book begins with the first chapter heading Sixty so we know this is a countdown in years to a death foretold Well and good But when he does die so does the book The women wives lovers and lovers his daughter his coterie of friends even his shows die as Fosse dies FIN

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBII have never been so happy to come to the end of a book as I was when Fosse ended It is a well researched and written book but I so disliked Bob Fosse after the first 5 pages that it wouldn't matter how brilliantly the book was written I have been watching clips of his dances between reading the book and have enjoyed those immensely but as a person I couldn't stand him and really have a hard time understanding why women would fall in love with him marry or live with him and just accept his cheating on them all the time I don't care what he suffered growing up that gives him no excuse for his disgusting behavior

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIThe only reason I read this was because of the Yearly Reading Challenge Rad Reads through my Facebook group Pop Culture bookclub Definitely would not have picked this up otherwise I didn't know who Bob Fosse was before this book and while I have a great idea now I wasn't really impressed with his character Fosse was certainly an ingenious choreographer and director but as a human? He was kind of a dumpster fire I'm also really surprised he even made it to 60 wit

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIAs I was finishing Sam Wasson's biography of Bob Fosse Molly Ringwald published this article in The New Yorker and it served as a nice companion piece to how I was feeling about the experience of learning about Bob Fosse's life In her article Ringwald looks back at the John Hughes movies that made her famous and reconsiders them both as an adult woman and in light of the #MeToo movement The movies don't come away unscathed and really they don't deserve toBob Fosse is one of Broadway's greatest icons His signature style is instantly recognizable and there is no denying the impact he had on theater to this very day As he transitioned from dancer and performer to choreographer and to director he left behind indelible works like Damn Yankees Sweet Charity the film version of Cabaret Liza with a Z Pippin and Chicago He was known to be problematic eve

    PDF/EPUB Fosse Epub ô È hostingencolombia.co fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIHaving watched All That Jazz on HBO in my tween years I have been a Bob Fosse fan for over half my life I've wanted to read this book since it came out it's been in my pile for two years and since the FX miniseries aired this spring I figured it was time to dig it out of my pile and get crackingWhat a wonderful time in which we live when we can go to YouTube and watch a clip from a movie or a TV ad or Liza With A Z with just a few clicks Supplementing this book with that material just made it that much better Author Sam Wasson is a thorough chronicler 589 pages of text and copious end notes but he has that tendency to slip into hipster speak taking the reader out of the narrative and inserting himself instead It wasn't Nick Tosches in Dino bad but I still prefer a little less folderol An Example In a business of lucky breaks where the revolving door of chance turns for jerk and genius alike patience not talent would get Fosse and Niles where they wanted t
