If you’re currently watching the FX limited series Fosse/Verdon right now, then you’re probably going down a rabbit hole of watching clips from the movies and shows referenced. The eight-episode series stars Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams as Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, telling the story of their relationship as it relates to their work and fame. With any luck, Fosse/Verdon will stream soon on Netflix, but one of Fosse’s biggest hits, Cabaret, starts streaming this month.

Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, which was in turn based on both a novel and a play, Cabaret stars Liza Minnelli as cabaret singer Sally Bowles in 1937 Berlin. She meets academic Brian Roberts (Michael York), who begins a relationship with Sally despite his uncertainties about his sexuality. However, a wealthy playboy’s arrival acts as a major complication for both Sally and Brian in a love triangle that erupts in the midst of a turbulent political climate.

Although there was mild controversy over the film’s subject matter, Cabaret received mostly positive reviews from critics and earned $42.8 million at the box office. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Director for Bob Fosse and Best Actress for Liza Minnelli, but lost Best Picture to The Godfather. Cabaret is recognized as one of the all-time best movie musicals, and now with Fosse/Verdon reviving interest in the film, fans will be happy to give it another watch when it begins streaming on Netflix at the top of June.
