Fun, Laughs, Good Times at the Paley Center 'Fosse/Verdon' Exhibit
Updated: Jan 31, 2020
The highly anticipated FX series, Fosse/Verdon, amped up the buzz this week when The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California opened a new exhibit featuring the costumes from the limited TV series. Fun, Laughs, Good Times: An Inside Look into the Fashion of Fosse/Verdon opened on Wednesday, March 13 and will run through Sunday, April 28.
The exhibit features wardrobe that was inspired by the original designers. Edith Head created the costumes for the 1969 movie Sweet Charity,* and Fosse/Verdon costume designer Melissa Toth recreated those pieces for the series. Visitors will also see Charlotte Flemming-inspired pieces from the 1972 film, Cabaret, that Tosh also recreated for Fosse/Verdon.
Fosse/Verdon, based on the 2013 book, Fosse, by Sam Wasson, focuses on the professional and personal partnership of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Both Fosse and Verdon were considered masters of their craft and their legacy in the entertainment industry lives on through Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams' performances.
