‘Fosse’ the musical stars the choreography of 9 time award-winner Bob Fosse, known for his thoroughly modern style and signature moves such as snapping fingers, rakishly tilted bowler hats, swivelling hips, and rolling shoulders. The production is a journey in song and dance through Bob Fosse’s extraordinary career and stars 32 of Broadway’s hottest and most talented dancers. ‘Fosse’ includes rarely seen dance numbers from the choreographer’s earliest works, as well as classic Fosse numbers like ‘Steam Heat’, ‘Big Spender’, ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’, ‘Dancin Man’ and ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’.
The National Theatre brings another Greek tragedy to the stage at the Abbey, following the acclaimed production of ‘Medea’ starring Fiona Shaw. Euripides’ ‘Iphigenia at Aulis’ is a powerful examination of nationalism and the price of war, told through the eyes of one family and their eldest daughter, Iphigenia. This contemporary production will be directed by Katie Mitchell, whose work includes ‘The Phoenician Women’ for the Royal Shakespeare Company and the critically acclaimed production of ‘The Oresteia’ at the Royal National Theatre in London.
