Michael McClain is already handicapping the Emmys:
Amy Adams watches Michelle Williams replicate Gwen Verdon’s rapturous curtain call during CAN-CAN on tonight’s episode of #FosseVerdon, takes a sip of vodka…the space she’s reserved on her shelf for an Emmy slowly fading into obscurity…

Theater lover Kevin Daly has drawn some meta conclusions from the show so far:
So far, the lesson of #FosseVerdon is that Gwen Verdon deserved an Oscar for ‘Cabaret’ and sainthood for putting up with Bob.

Animator and YouTuber Lena was unsettled by one of the night’s most emotional moments:

Writer Greg Brian is looking forward to another of Fosse’s leading ladies:
So next week we'll see Fosse meet Ann Reinking when directing "Pippin." Now we're entering #FosseVerdon's most creative phase. Maybe it'll get meta and show Michael Jackson learning Fosse's moves in "The Little Prince" by Ep. 5.
