Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams give viewers plenty of razzle and dazzle in Fosse/Verdon -- a straightforward miniseries that is hampered by rote biographical tropes, but still shimmies with the requisite glitz, grit, and all that jazz audiences crave.

Critic Reviews for Fosse/Verdon Miniseries

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (29)

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.

Any quibbles one might have with this season fly away when the dancing begins.

It's one of the most brazen and deeply sensual shows ever brought to screen. And if it doesn't sweep up come Emmys time, something is wrong with Hollywood.

Other than the scene where Eve verbally smacks down Hugo for interrupting her, the new professional status quo for Eve at the moment is less compelling than what's happening in her home life.

[Williams] and Sam Rockwell have really great chemistry...I hope we can see a little more of her participation.

While the premiere episode may seem jumpy from its cuts to different time settings - if only to set the perimeters of the rest of the series - it soon sets to dazzle.
