Behind great art, there’s always greater pain, sacrifice, and failure. The same goes for love, it’s something that you choose to go on with, even during hardships so that you can later embrace the good parts of it. Very similar to this is the story of ‘Fosse/Verdon’, a biography drama that explores the individual professional lives and the the beautiful love life of two great artists, Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Their individual stories about how the two reached the pinnacle of success, with one becoming a highly influential Broadway director and the other being known as the greatest Broadway dancer ever, are truly inspiring.
What people, today, remember the most about the iconic couple is how they shared the unique visions that allowed them to reach the peak of their careers and new heights with their unfathomable bond. Their relationship was not entirely perfect and they even decided to end their marriage after 11 years, but it’s the connection that they had till the time of Fosse’s death that restores the possibility of true love in this world. Their dynamic duo is truly unforgettable and this TV show is a beautiful tribute to that. With that said, here’s the list of best shows similar to ‘Fosse/Verdon’ that are our recommendations.
