News & Interviews for Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries
[Sam] Rockwell delivers a strong performance as Fosse but it's [Michelle] Williams' incredible work as the soft-spoken Verdon that truly brings this drama alive.
Rockwell is fully invested in a role that challenges him well beyond the semi-caricature he played in Vice. Self-assured and brusque when calling the shots, he's otherwise an emotional adolescent, or sometimes an infant.
Scenes play out as if viewers are seeing them from inside the director's head, experiencing the swings between his hyperego and his crashing insecurity... These moments are ingenious, and they bring a vibrant theatricality to the series.
Fosse/Verdon is extremely watchable and totally fascinating. I enjoyed almost every minute...
In "Fosse/Verdon," [Williams and Rockwell] inhabit their roles completely and convincingly.
"Fosse/Verdon" is a claustrophobic series as opposed to an epic one. What's mostly missing is the thrill of opening night, the chorus line, the music, the whole glorious space of the theater.
In an incandescent performance, Michelle Williams captures Verdon's intuitive intelligence and irresistible exuberance... while Sam Rockwell depicts the workaholic essence of Fosse's weariness.
The show does a brilliant job of showing the changing dynamics between this married couple through some really tense scenes and dialogues, played masterfully by [Michelle] Williams and [Sam] Rockwell.
While the series has had its ups and downs, it's tried to present the story of two great auteurs in an artistic, unique way, rather than playing everything as a simple, linear biopic.
It is enormously disappointing when even an approximation of the spirit of Fosse and Verdon's work, as opposed to its replication, cannot be mustered, in favor of trashy prestige.
Despite stellar performances from its two lead actors, it never really breaks out of that established biopic framework enough to tell a fresh and compelling story.
Audience Reviews for Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries
Feb 14, 2021With all the glitz, glam, and razzle-dazzle, Fosse/Verdon is a force from beginning to tragic end. With a sensational cast led by the immaculate Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, there is no question why this award winning miniseries is a must-see.
Jan 06, 2021Anchored by the savvy performances of leads Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell, Fosse/Verdon pays tribute to two Broadway legends while portraying the humane side of its famous icons.
May 15, 2019The scripts are improving, but Michelle Williams has been stellar, throughout.
May 08, 2019This is a phenomenal show! Michelle Williams IS Gwen Verdon and Sam Rockwell absolutely nails another precise character. So well done ALL!
May 08, 2019LOVE this show! Michelle William IS Gwen Verdon and Sam Rockwell is great as Fosse - GREAT, GREAT show!
May 03, 2019Rockwell and Williams perform an exquisite dance around the addiction.
Apr 30, 2019If you are into soap operas by all means watch this nonsense. But if you'd like to see a well made movie about Fosse just watch All That Jazz. Very poorly conceived, even with fine actors in the leads.
Apr 11, 2019Can't wait for more. I LOVED this!
Apr 10, 2019The recreation of Fosse's work is incredible. And it illuminates a VITAL part of his story, the influence of the women in his life. Verdon was too often left uncredited when it came to her contributions and it is about time her story be brought to light.
