Bob Fosse was an American actor, dancer, choreographer, director, screenwriter, editor, and film director. He won an unprecedented eight Tony Awards for choreography (Damn Yankees, The Pajama Game, Sweet Charity, Cabaret, and Pippin, among others) as well as one for direction (Pippin). He was nominated for the Academy Award four times, winning for his direction of Cabaret (beating Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather). Fosse won a Tony, an Emmy and an Oscar all in the same year (1973). Fosse's greatest contribution to the arts, however, was the creation of his own style of theater dance; his lasting influence became the driving force behind Fosse, the Broadway revue of Fosse's choreography, which won the Tony for Best Musical in 1999. The current Broadway production of Chicago, originally directed and choreographed by Fosse, is now the longest running revival in Broadway history.
