The Verdon Fosse Legacy mourns the loss of Broadway performer, John Mineo (10/26/1942-11/19/2016). Mineo performed in Bob Fosse’s PIPPIN and DANCIN’ and in the Broadway revival of CHICAGO.
Born in the Bronx, Mineo began dancing at age 5 and was accepted to the High School of Performing Arts before landing his first Broadway show as Baby John in WEST SIDE STORY at age 17. After an extensive forty-four year career on Broadway (nineteen musicals!), Mineo relocated to Japan with his wife to found J Dance, a theater and tap dance studio in Osaka. www.thinkcount.com
