Join us for a four-week Cinematic Series featuring film historian Max Alvarez.

Week 1: The Reel Fosse/Verdon...and All That Jazz

Last year's FX TV series "Fosse/Verdon" introduced new generations to the remarkable show business team of director/choreographer Bob Fosse and dancer/actress/wife/muse Gwen Verdon. But there are no substitutes for the originals. Join film historian Max Alvarez for this exhilarating and electrifying tribute to the real Fosse/Verdon.

The 90-minute presentation includes rare archival dance footage of the two legends as well as selections from the film versions of Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity, Cabaret, and such edgy Fosse masterworks as All That Jazz.
