Notes: 

One of the longest running shows in Broadway history, and the longest running American musical, is this revival of a 1975 Kander and Ebb musical, originally directed by Bob Fosse, whose style is strongly imprinted on the production. New York City Center began a concert series of rarely heard American musicals in 1994, and in its second year presented this production directed by Walter Bobbie with choreography "in the style of Bob Fosse" by Ann Reinking, and with costumes by William Ivey Long. Whereas the original production seemed too cynical for audiences, by 1996, audiences had evolved and the show quickly moved to the Richard Rodgers Theater, where the original production has spent its two year run. It won six Tonys, a record at that time for a revival, and has been running ever since.
