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.

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. Go to mimiquillin.com for more.
