The non linear story continues. You just have to watch Sam Rockwell's hairline to see if you are in the past, present or the future.
In the second episode Verdon gets to reflect on her relationship with Fosse from Majorca as her marriage disintegrates somewhere at the time of Cabaret. Fosse just could not help playing around.
Of course Fosse was already married when Verdon encountered him. Forced to collaborate as someone thought he would be a good choreographer for her for Damn Yankees. Vedon would win a Tony award. Both of them had been involved in the Burlesque scene which was important in the type of dance they were developing.
It is interesting to see Damn Yankees being developed and both of them being playful to each other and falling in love. However Fosse's second wife at the time was ill, maybe Verdon knew deep down she was also on borrowed time.
It is disconcerting to see Michelle Williams made to look so much like Shirley Maclaine when Verdon looked more like Lucille Ball.
