Fosse/Verdon, as a period piece, is undeniably beautiful. Every detail is exquisitely correct...
April 11, 2019
The show makes the argument that Fosse did not achieve all of his efforts on his own - but even as it emphasizes the importance of their partnership, it still doesn't offer the two characters equal focus.
April 11, 2019
A treat for those familiar with the work of these two artists, but it may also prove to be revelation for those uninitiated. It introduces us to two people who define the fevered environment of working in a creative field.
April 10, 2019
An interesting biopic that doesn't work well when one of its central figures is absent from the screen. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's heavy, but mainly it's heavy-handed.
April 10, 2019
In spirit, at least, Fosse/Verdon lives up to its subject.
April 10, 2019
The drama bar raised in Fosse/Verdon's first episode promises that this series will involve a fascinating exploration to find out.

April 10, 2019
Its jump cuts and fantasy interludes... It keeps the miniseries from sinking too deep into biopic predictability, but it can't disguise a disappointing turn from the typically reliable Rockwell.

April 10, 2019
While the premiere episode may seem jumpy from its cuts to different time settings - if only to set the perimeters of the rest of the series - it soon sets to dazzle.
April 10, 2019
The interplay between Fosse and Verdon is equally captivating whether the pair is wrapped up in choreography or some otherwise banal domestic circumstance.
April 10, 2019
The title is the revised directorial credit that most of Fosse's film and stage productions should have carried in the first place.
April 10, 2019
I have never seen a Fosse show or movie, but the songs still reverberate in my mind. His work wriggles into your head and doesn't escape.

April 10, 2019
Williams brings an often-overlooked entertainer back to life.

April 10, 2019
While Fosse/Verdon explores the couple's decades-long romantic and professional relationship, it also challenges the myth of the solo auteur.
April 9, 2019
While it's appropriate for the series to give Gwen Verdon equal billing in the show's title, like so many stories from yesteryear, this is really a series about Bob Fosse.
April 9, 2019
Fosse/Verdon is as good as anything I've ever seen at depicting the cost of sharing that brain, of having a relationship you should leave, except it's the only place you can get this one particular thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

[W]hat "Fosse/Verdon" is most interested in is the work, the "90% perspiration" that, added to a little inspiration, make what we like to call genius.
April 9, 2019
By shifting to their shared home life and marriage arrangements, the limited series creates a compelling behind-the-applause drama, anchored by a career best performance from Michelle Williams.
April 9, 2019
Fosse/Verdon has too much Bob Fosse, not enough Gwen Verdon, and a whole lot of story beats we've seen in the recent past.
April 9, 2019
Scenes play out as if viewers are seeing them from inside the director's head, experiencing the swings between his hyperego and his crashing insecurity... These moments are ingenious, and they bring a vibrant theatricality to the series.
