Манн и Фосси: вдогонку

Таки мы с Дженной были не совсем правы ;)
Во-первых, ТМ, вместе с легендарной Шарлоттой д'Амбуаз, работали с Анн Рейнкинг, а точнее -- под её началом в revival'е "Tonight at 8:30" Noel'а Coward'а. Только не спрашивайте меня, кто и что это :) Нет, рейнкинг, это, конечно, не сам Фосси. Но всё-таки, хоть 2-degree connection ;)
А во-вторых, в одном интервью ТМ отыскалась байка о Фосси. Вот такая:
...I can only tell you how I got to it, and that was because I didn't know how to do anything else. (Laughter). So let me -- having said all of that, and I'm not making very much sense -- who's seen Broadway plays? Who's not seen a Broadway play? Who's only imagined seeing a Broadway play? Who wants to be on Broadway? Who knows they're going to be on Broadway? Ah. Even more hands went up that time. What is that all about? Who has been in a Broadway show? Oh, I see, I can't wait to see your resume. (Laughter).
Bob Fosse tells a story about he was interviewing this girl and she came in to sing for him, and the resume came across the desk and it said Cabaret. She had been in Cabaret, in the Broadway production of Cabaret. (Laughter).
And he goes, so you were in Cabaret? Yes, I was in Cabaret. In the original production? Yes, I was. Did you know I directed that? And she went, fully confident, no, I didn't. And she got a callback. Amazing.

Не густо, конечно... Но всё-таки: уже что-то.
Кстати, и байка хорошая ;)
P.S. А Шарлотта, между прочим, играла Рокси в U.S. "Roxie" tour'е "Чикаго". И вообще оказалась немеренно крутой и известной дамой, чего я от неё не ожидал. Ну, в общем... с чем нас и поздравляем ;)
