Well, Fosse/Verdon promised to go full “Pippin” this week, and they delivered. Here’s how the show’s fans and creators are flipping out over Season One Episode Four – “Glory”:
Musician extraordinaire Alex Lacamoire explains this episode’s disturbing lack of Liza with a Z:
When we said we were going full PIPPIN, we were not joking #FosseVerdonFX

We feel you, Randy. We would have loved to see your Ann, as well:
I love how I wasn’t even seen for this episode of #FosseVerdonFX when everyone knows I’ve had a solid Ann Reinking impression under my belt since 1996. Fuck show business.

Writer Greg Brian mistook Fosse’s depressive breakdown for a heart attack – but it’s still interesting to note that his health problems had already begun:
Didn't realize Fosse had his heart attack already before he even did "Chicago." Success comes at you at 150 mph sometimes, and you have to recoup. Then again, everything was moving too fast in America, 1973. #FosseVerdonFX
