Michael Jackson didn't invent the moonwalk. Bob Fosse did. Chet Walker, the choreographer's protegé who co-created the 1999 Tony-winning Fosse, joined the Broadway cast of Pippin two years after its 1972 premiere. With the American Repertory Theater's upcoming revival directed by Diane Paulus, Walker finds himself revisiting — and reimagining — a work that had been relegated to student and regional productions. This time, Walker's choreography in Fosse's much-imitated but never surpassed style will be augmented by acrobatics from Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main.
