We met Bob Fosse’s ailing wife Joanie McCracken. Bob and Gwen get hot and bothered working on “Whatever Lola Wants.” And everyone figured out “Who’s Got the Pain?” in Episode 2 of Fosse/Verdon. Twitter had thoughts:
Actor Brent Spiner echoed Joanie and Gwen’s conversation about star quality:
If you’re ever confused about what a Star is, check out Michelle Williams. #FosseVerdonFX

Performer Nicholas Baroudi looked back fondly at his time working with the crackerjack cast of Fosse/Verdon:
In my short time on @FosseVerdonFX , the only thing more impressive than witnessing the talent of Williams, Rockwell, Kail up close, was their humility, generosity, and kindness. #FosseVerdon pic.twitter.com/PXxFliIzpF

Artist Dan Riley shouted out (among other things) the show’s excellent production design:
I had a feeling I’d be interested in #FosseVerdon, but I didn’t expect it to be this excellent. Really detailed, thoughtful and satisfying – you’ll be thinking about the songs, the costumes, the scenes and sets for days after each episode. It’s intoxicating. Bravo. pic.twitter.com/5TwY3VEK0g

Fosse/Verdon‘s resident Hal Prince, Evan Handler, enjoyed watching the show with Lin-Manuel Miranda – and his pup:
Deep gratitude to @Lin_Manuel, Tommy Kail, Michelle Williams, Sam Rockwell, and FX for bringing me onto their project, and to Lin and Vanessa for welcoming me into their home (even their dog is beautiful)!#honored#FosseVerdonFX pic.twitter.com/cXm1ezah33

The king of Fosse/Verdon watch parties promised a stacked line-up enjoying next week’s episode, including Natalie Walker, Julia Murney, and Audra McDonald:
Thanks so much for watching with us live! FX is gonna show it a bunch more times, and West Coast, you're in for a treat!
Sh**, I gotta get an accompanist.

Theater critic Adam Feldman required multiple viewings:
I have watched tonight's episode of Fosse/Verdon three times already, and I just might watch it again. Michelle Williams is just that good in it. And the scene in which she meets Sam Rockwell's Fosse for the first time—and he teaches her "Whatever Lola Wants"—is pure magic.

And filmmaker Domonique Breckenridge just couldn’t get the mambo off her mind:
And now I'll be spending the rest of the night doing 🎶Who's got the pain when they do the mambo?🎶 around the house … #FosseVerdonFX Goodnight Everybody
