Bob had a breakdown! Gwen sang! And even though the skies were gray, the cast was radiant in the wake of Judith’s passing in Fosse/Verdon Episode 5 “Where Am I Going?” Naturally, the people of Twitter had feelings about it:
Charlie Smith gave voice to what we’re all feeling every time Michell Williams walks onscreen:
If you love great acting, musical theatre, great writing & direction, you MUST watch #FosseVerdonFX Tues nights at 10. I do not have – there have NOT been invented – superlatives worthy of the performance Michelle Williams is delivering. Overused word, but: GENIUS – UNBELIEVABLE! pic.twitter.com/okjslzbwDG

David Russell (Sia’s manager, y’all!) was torn up by Michelle singing this episode’s title song:
Michelle Williams as Gwen Verdon on #FosseVerdonFX – she just performed the most devastating version of “Where I Am Going?”. Speechless!!!
