Remembering Ann Reinking

Like many people, I first became acquainted with Ann Reinking as I studied everything I could get my hands on about Bob Fosse. Of course, though their lives and careers were inextricably intertwined, I became quite a fan of hers independent of him. I've seen her films, Annie and All That Jazz, and really enjoyed her work. But seeing her on stage was an extraordinary thrill for this theater lover, and I had the opportunity four times: first in the revival of Sweet Charity, then in a revival national tour of Bye Bye Birdie with another amazing dancer/choreographer, Tommy Tune, in the revival of Chicago, and finally in Fosse. She was brilliant - so precise, so effortless. A singular talent.

Thank you, Ms. Reinking, for carrying on the Fosse Legacy, and for being a superstar in your own right. It was a privilege to be witness to your talents. RIP.
