Pronunciation[edit]

Isn't it pronounced "fossy"? There should be a word to this effect. Flapdragon 01:00, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

In Norwegian (e.g. the author Jon Fosse), it's more like "foss-eh" (stressing the first part). Of course, it's unlikely that B.F. or anyone else in the US pronounced it that way. I cannot say for sure, but "fossy" sounds likely. JöG 07:08, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes, it's "fossy." 75.48.16.182 (talk) 19:05, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Filmography[edit]

Is it true that he was the choreographer for White Christmas, the movie? If this is true I think its worth mentioning.Allthewhile 03:05, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Allthewhile -- IMdB lists him as choreographer for that, though uncredited. Aliza250 19:34, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Bad edit?[edit]

This sentence makes no sense: "In 2001, Fosse was awarded the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Theatre Choreographer with Ann Reinking for Fosse at the Prince of Wales Theatre." Did a previous edit remove some words?

Content plagiarized?[edit]

2378437843778yurewyty8 fuck I spent some time fixing typos and links and removing malicious edits in this article, only to discover that the text matches verbatim the Fosse bio at Ask.com (http://www.answers.com/topic/bob-fosse). I don't know which page is the original and which was plagiarized. 66.26.79.152 15:11, 5 April 2007 (UTC)simonlefranc@hotmail.com

Since the answers.com site says it uses information from Wikipedia, I'm pretty sure answers.com took it from here and not the other way around. (For what it's worth, I've seen a lot of answers.com articles which are verbatim reproductions of Wikipedia articles. I think it's standard procedure for them to copy Wikipedia.)

Another bad edit?[edit]

Paragraph 2 under "Marriages" starts with "She", but it's not clear who the pronoun refers to, as several women were named in the previous sentence. LynnD71 (talk) 15:01, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure the paragraph refers to Lainie Sakakura. The clues: the "Lainie" from the text; the work on "Fosse"; here is her IBDB entry: [1]. In any event, she was not married to Bob Fosse, does not belong in that section. Further, she may have had some involvement in his work products, and, if notable/interesting (etc), that work belongs in those specific articles, not in this bio/article. Or, if anyone thinks that she is notable, she could have her own article (I am not necessarily suggesting such, just pointing out the options). JeanColumbia (talk) 21:03, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Neutral voice[edit]

While I can appreciate the sheer volume of material added by 208.59.133.221, these additions are largely unsourced and could use a bit more professionalism and a bit less breathless theater geek.--RosicrucianTalk 23:27, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Go to YouTube and watch Snake in the Grass (Little Prince) - Michael Jackson stole all the moves. At least a few words about this should be in the article on Bob Fosse. --KpoT (talk) 16:37, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
