Bob Fosse, the legendary dancer, choreographer, screenwriter, and director, died in 1987, but his innovations live on in his work, such as the film Cabaret, for which he won an Oscar (the same year, he also won a Tony and an Emmy). Providing full context for his professional career and showing us his relationships with others -- his wives, his dancers, and his friends -- author Sam Wasson presents a "scintillating biography" (Publishers Weekly) that, even at 750 pages, "ends too soon" (Booklist).

Gypsy Rose Lee survived an appalling childhood in vaudeville to become a star known far beyond the burlesque stage. In this "fast-paced, funny, flavorful reckoning with a unique American icon" (Kirkus Reviews), author Karen Abbott offers far more than "just" a biography -- she provides context for Gypsy's life and brings the people of the era to life, including the Tammany Hall politicians, gangsters, and theater promoters who surrounded Gypsy, and the Minsky brothers, who popularized burlesque in the 1930s.
