His signature style would influence generations of performing artists. Yet in spite of Fosses innumerableincluding Cabaret, Pippin, All That Jazz, and Chicago, one of the longest-running Broadway musicals everhis offstage life was shadowed by deep wounds and insatiable appetites.

To craft this richly detailed account, best-selling author Sam Wasson has drawn on a wealth of unpublished material and hundreds of sources: friends, enemies, lovers, and collaborators, many of them speaking publicly about Fosse for the first time. With propulsive energy and stylish prose, Fosse is the definitive biography of one of Broadway and Hollywoods most complex and dynamic icons.
