It seems to me that neither Dancin' (which I did not see originally) nor Big Deal (which I did, albeit unfortunately, see, in its Boston tryout) were anywhere near Fosse's heyday, which really ended stage-wise with Chicago and then continued on film with All That Jazz.. I'm also not sure who this revival is supposed to be aimed at - I would say that although I didn't think "Fosse" (the revue) was a truly stellar property either (for reasons already mentioned - the sameness of the material given the revue format, etc), THAT seems like the recognizable property that might conceivably bring audiences in again. Why are they reviving - and really rewriting - Dancin'? Is this more of an emotional gesture on Cilento's part? Understandable perhaps, but can that really sell tickets?
