Question 5

Name the musical. This musical was based on the 1957 Federico Fellini film Nights of Cabiria which featured Fellini's wife, Giulietta Masina as a prostitute ... the 1966 musical was directed by Bob Fosse who put his wife, Gwen Verdon, in the main role as a dancer at the Fandango Ballroom. Identify this musical with a book by Neil Simon which starred Debbie Allen in its 1986 revival, and got some good press in 2005 with Christina Applegate overcoming injuries to keep the show on schedule, earning her a Tony nomination in the process.
