    OTG: Gary Flannery - His Dance … His Way

    in Entertainment

    Debbie Barth, Linda J Alexander, and Lynn Bensy are honored to have Gary Flannery join us and take center stage, November 12, 2015! Gary was Bob Fosse’s LEAD dancer on Broadway in “PIPPIN” and “DANCIN.” He was also a Principal Dancer in the classic feature film “ALL THAT JAZZ,” where he can be seen performing the male adagio in the famous Airotica number!


    You will be spellbound with his stories of "the big stage", the people (like ... Shirley MacLaine, with whom he toured for three years) ... the good, the bad ... and the downright ugly!! 




    Bob Fosse nicknamed Gary the “Bull,“ for the shear non-stop, dance-till-you-drop attitude he took into rehearsals as well as performances.  Fred Astaire commented after seeing Gary in Dancin’ in 1979: “It was one of the greatest dance performances he had ever seen!” 


     


    For many years Mr. Flannery was the artistic director of his own dance company. He still directs and Choreographs, writes plays, musicals and revues, and performs today. Gary Flannery was also a Pennsylvania Governor’s Award winner for his devoted teaching and appearances with his Dancers Company based out of Bucks County in 1980.


     


    Presently Gary is working hard on finishing his 25 years of work on the multi-level project “The Great American Revue” with books, documentaries and revivals being planned.
