In 1983, Bob directed his final film, All That Jazz. In 1987, he died of a heart attack at age 60, reportedly collapsing into Verdon’s arms in Washington, D.C. In 2000, Verdon died of a heart attack at age 75. The Verdon Fosse Legacy arts center was later created to “promote, preserve, and protect the artistic and intellectual property of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon,” according to its mission statement. Many dancers from the Legacy are part of the series.
