CALL FOSSE AT THE MINSKOFF Enters Final Performances at United Solo
2016 United Solo Festival presents writer/performer Mimi Quillin in her solo piece, Call Fosse at the Minskoff, continuing tonight, September 23 at 9pm and Monday, September 26 at 9pm at The Studio Theatre @ Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street - just east of Broadway).
Dancing for Bob Fosse is a steep slope that rides fast and fun. Addicted to discipline in the studio, he asks complete submission to his signature fractured shapes. So why does it feel so good? In 1985, Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon invite Mimi Quillin into their magical world to reconstruct Fosse's Sweet Charity. Quillin falls in love with them, their creative genius & the heady aroma of their artistic chemistry. In Call Fosse at the Minskoff, Quillin shares the highs and the lows of Fosse's final years and reveals his quicksilver style to be as tricky to conquer offstage as onstage.
Tickets are $20.25 and may be obtained through Telecharge.com or (212) 239-6200. September 22 and September 26 performances are sold out. More information at unitedsolo.org/us/callfosse-2016.

Mimi Quillin (Writer/Performer) trained as a dancer in NYC and danced in both the Pittsburgh and Milwaukee ballet companies before working on Broadway with Bob Fosse on Sweet Charity. Fosse awarded her a scholarship to the Strasberg Institute, which turned her vision towards acting and led to being cast in plays Off-Broadway and in England. Mimi's time with Fosse and Gwen Verdon is the foundation underlying the philosophy of her work as a performer, choreographer and writer. In addition to her work with Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon Mimi has also performed the work of Carol Haney, Chris Chadman, Wayne Cilento, Graciela Danielle, Ron Field, Agnes De Mille, Pat Birch, Ona White, Lee Theodore, Michael Shawn, Randy Skinner. Mimi also appeared in the original Canadian and Broadway production of Ragtime and in the Broadway production of Ain't Broadway Grand. mimiquillin.com
John Thomas Waite (Director) was Mozart on Broadway, performed Shakespeare in London, hosted a kid's series that aired on PBS, rode an elephant as a costumed hamburger clown, played Dr. Watson to the Sherlock Holmes of World Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes and has been in and out of The Fantastics off Broadway since 1976. (He is currently standing by for ALL of the character men.)
