I enjoyed this show, even though it wasn't the best taping the dancing was good and I enjoyed seeing Chita Rivera and Ben Vereen. I have always wanted to see them on the stage and I finally go too.

This production, while being an okay souvenir of the show, doesn't come up to par with what Bob Fosse created for Broadway. While Ben Vereen and Chita Rivera are terrific, as expected, William Katt in the title role simply doesn't have the chops for the role. His singing is often flat and strained and makes for an uncomfortable watching experience. While it's great to have a record of Fosse's choreography in one's library, the overall flatness of the production makes it a video not very often played.
