The Verdon Fosse Legacy was honored to partake in the 4th annual Dancers for Good benefit concert in support of The Actors Fund. The event, held at Guild Hall in East Hampton, was hosted by Cady Huffman (Bob Fosse’s BIG DEAL) and honored Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon for their Lifetime Achievement. Their middle grandson, Noah Fosse, accepted the honor on behalf of the Verdon Fosse Legacy. The Legacy also closed the show with a performance of “I Gotcha,” the fun and funky trio from Bob Fosse’s Emmy-winning “Liza with a Z” (1972). Mimi Quillin reconstructed the piece which starred Bianca Marroquin (Chita Rivera in FX’s “Fosse Verdon), Nicolas de la Vega, and Nicholas Sipes. It was a magical evening filled with incredible dancing for an incredible cause. For more information about Dancers for Good, visit www.dancersforgood.org.
