Gwen Verdon was born to the theater. Her mother, Gertrude, was a vaudevillian and dancer. Her father, Joseph, was an MGM studio electrician. She had to wear corrective boots as a child to straighten out her legs, which were misshapen by childhood illness. Nonetheless, she first appeared as a tapper on stage at age 6. She got her break in Bob Fosse’s “Damn Yankees” in 1955. She married Fosse in 1960 and separated from him, although never divorcing him, in the mid-’70s. More stage and screen work quickly followed with highlights in “New Girl In Town”, “Redhead”, “Sweet Charity”, and “Chicago”. She and her daughter, Nicole Fosse, created the current stage musical “Fosse”. Upon her death, Broadway dimmed all of its marquee lights in tribute.
