Did the critics like Dancin'
Kitty March 20th, 2023
Did this revival of Bob Fosses' 1978 'dancsical' get the critics on their feet?
Now playing at Broadway's Music Box Theatre, Dancin' is choreographed and directed by original cast member, Tony-winning Wayne Cilento! Boasting an eclectic score made up of myriad genres from Mozart to Neil Diamond, Cilento promised a relevant update, expanding the piece in tribute to Fosse and his far-reaching legacy. Did he deliver? See our critic's review round-up below!
Variety Loved Cilento's take
"A rapturous Broadway homage to a great choreographer... Huge kudos, then, to director-choreographer Wayne Cilento, for creating a new Broadway revival that both honors its source and shares his own inspirational ardor.
Although it famously has no plot, Fosse's groundbreaking show does, indeed, have a story. It's the love story of a dancer and his dance. This production even has a backstory, because Cilento also performed in the original production. This is Cilento's rapturous and extremely personal homage to a great showpiece by a great choreographer."
Entertainment Weekly Enjoyed the dancers "Sing, sing, singin' the praises of dance and a master of the craft...The first ever Broadway revival of the 1978 musical revue lives up to the legendary choreographer and director behind it...Dancin' stars 22 of the best dancers Broadway has to offer and they are all gorgeous. Watching them move is a sexual thrill in itself. Even though what they're doing is so intricate and demanding, there's a palpable joy ecstasy really in their dance, which gives the show a feeling more of a party than a play. As far as Broadway audiences go, mine was a little rowdy. A reaction both to elaborate postures and at-times elaborate skin-baring costumes."
