I saw part one tonight and I know All That Jazz was based on Fosses life.
Seriously? ATJ portrayed an uberType A personality this show Fosse seems kinda pathetic and slow moving. He is shown as a perfectionist choreographer with a dry sense of humor but that’s about it.
The first episode concentrated on his making the movie Caberet after the disaster Sweet Charity. He is a cheater which never came across as believable. How he was portrayed in ALJ yes he had charisma and a dynamic personality. Here no there is something pathetic about him.
Michelle Williams as Gwen Vernon yes she is the reason to watch, full of life which I suspect real Vernon was based on interviews and her presence in movies and tv.
No where near as good as the previous docuseries on Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. That was a must watch series.
Maybe this will improve.
Oh the one playing Liza Minnelli looks just like her and sounds like her. Good casting job and performance.
Anyone saw episode one tonight?
