So proud of @mattkrzan !
Just this weekend he has choreographed (and performed in) an entire gig for 15 dancers in #Berlin for an audience of 4000 and then on less than 2 hours sleep beautifully recreated Gwen Verdon’s performance of “A fine, fine day” on the Ed Sullivan Show for @maddragnight.
And here he is in his pageant realness. 👸🏼#musclequeen @madtrust #dragqueen #choreographer #boyfriends #gwenverdon #fosse #ifyoudontknow #googleit #reference #theater #gorge #drag #fun #instagay #love xxx

#MakeVulnerabilityCoolAgain
Also seeing how I equate sweetness with vulnerability.
They are NOT the same thing.

#tbt I think you could tell from my dead biscuit hands that I would NEVER be a real life Fosse dancer (only in my dreamzzz)😜.... BUT I did get to take class with the legend of all legends, Dame GWEN VERDON. Sigh. She passed away shortly after this summer. I spent an afternoon in a room w her learning “Who’s Got the Pain” from #damnyankees. An unreal afternoon for little Alex:) Also..... hair..... annnd eyebrows. 😬❤️ .

You will be missed. Remembering #TabHunter (1931-2018)

Baseball player Tab and seductress Lola #GwenVerdon in locker room during the filming of #BobFosse ‘s #DamnYankees #WarnerBros technicolor #musical

Below is Tab’s heartfelt recollection of first seeing Verdon perform with Jack Cole’s dance troupe in a LA nightclub and then working with Verdon on Damn Yankees.

Thoughts of Gwen…
-
I first laid eyes on Gwen at Ciro’s night club on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. She had become the talk of the town as the lead dancer with the very exciting Jack Cole Dancers. I was hypnotized by her red hair whirling above those beautiful, long legs that seemed to start at her neck and go on forever. I have never forgotten that evening. At the time I was still in high school with no aspirations to be an actor.
-
A few years later I was under contract to Warner Brothers Studio. Jack Warner had purchased the Broadway musical “Damn Yankees” as a vehicle for me. Mitzi Gaynor. Vera Ellen and Shirley Mac Laine were briefly mentioned for the role of Lola. I flew east to see the show and when Gwen stepped on stage, I immediately recognized her from that unforgettable evening at Ciro’s. Watching her weave her magic on stage, I was once again smitten with her talent. There could be no other Lola. She was perfect.
-
When filming began, I was overwhelmed to find myself the only Hollywood actor in the company of established Broadway performers. Gwen helped me deal with my insecurity. During the “Two Lost Souls” number she and Bobby showed me how to make good use of my two left feet. Ironically, the Broadway actors were also apprehensive about being in a Hollywood film. There were many outstanding things about this wonderful woman. Her voice was like a freshly opened bottle of champagne. She was warm and honest. I still smile when I think of Gwen laughingly calling me. . . Tabhuntah. . One word. . with a New York accent. Gwen has not only left an indelible mark on Broadway, but she lives on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known her and worked with her. . .When I think of Gwen, I think of the word “Vulnerable.” God bless you. You will be missed.” -T. Hunter 2001

One of my favorite films Damn Yankees. Just heard that Tab Hunter has died at 86. A another Hollywood heartthrob who has to hide that he was gay in the 1950’s. #tabhunter #damnyankees #gwenverdon
