"The Broadway Gypsy Lives Series"

Christine Fournier's books are a series of novels that honor the professional chorus dancers of Broadway musicals, also known as ‘Gypsies.’

Fournier performed on Broadway as a dancer during the 1960’s, a period now considered the golden age of Broadway musical theatre. Her mentors include renowned Director/Choreographers Bob Fosse and Jerome Robbins.

"In addition to two national tours with How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, a Pulitzer Prize winning Broadway show, Fournier was in the original company of Sweet Charity starring Gwen Verdon and performed with an International Company of West Side Story in Japan. She returned to Minnesota in 1968 as the original choreographer of the renowned Chanhassen Dinner Theatre. The series of four books follows the careers, events and lives of ‘Gypsy’ chorus dancers who are rarely acknowledged.

Join Christine Fournier on a journey into a world seldom experienced by the general public. The characters are composites of those she performed with and the events are based on facts. Relive the history of authentic people and go backstage into the lives of Broadway Gypsies, the dedicated dance artists who bring support and sparkle to musical theater.
