Michelle Williams transformed into Tony award winning actress, Gwen Verdon, as she takes on the role of Bob Fosse‘s widow for an upcoming biopic.
The four-time Academy Award nominated actress was seen Tuesday in Manhattan on the set of “Fosse/Verdon,” a biopic on the legendary choreographer based co-starring Sam Rockwell.
Verdon, known for her flaming red hair, was Fosse’s second wife and credited with being a longtime collaborator, dancer and muse of Fosse. Verdon and Fosse married in 1960 and separated in 1971, but stayed married until his death in 1987. They had one daughter, Nicole.
“Fosse/Verdon” is scheduled to premiere in April.
