Women of Fosse

Jeanne Jones Snow, Carolyn Kirsch
and Dana Moore

IN THE COMPANY OF FRIENDS: Dancers Talking to Dancers DO40’s second panel discussion was a huge success. Websites were buzzing! People came from all over, including theater chat sites and said “Priceless!” “It was simply thrilling to breathe the same air as all those wonderful performers!” And those that read the posts but didn’t attend wrote, “I would have killed to see this!” They are already asking for the date of The MEN of Fosse! Give us some time to catch our breath!

Louise Quick and Penny Worth opened the show with the “Manson Trio” from PIPPIN. Marge Beddow performed “’Erbie Fitch’s Twitch” from REDHEAD (Marge understudied Gwen Verdon in the original production) and Carolyn Kirsch and Penny Worth performed “Nowadays/Keep it Hot” from CHICAGO (they starred in the original CHICAGO tour after Gwen and Chita).

Besides these great performers the panel consisted of Dana Moore, from DANCIN’ and FOSSE, Jeanne Jones Snow, who performed in CALL ME MISTER with Fosse and his first wife, Mary Ann Niles in 1947, and moderator Harvey Evans, who performed in REDHEAD, and danced the “Who’s got the Pain” with Gwen Verdon in her last tour of DAMN YANKEES in 1974.

Seen in the audience were Valerie Harper,
Jeanne Charnin, Judd Jones, Pam Myers
and a slew of Broadway Gypsies from the
50’s, 60’s and 70’s… and 80’s… and it goes on…

The event had performance, panel discussion and video (from the Dick Cavett programs from the 70’s featuring Verdon and Fosse in hour long discussion and performance). The audience leapt to its feet for a deserved standing ovation – not the Broadway show “kind” of ovation – the real thing!
