GALA HONOREE ROB MARSHALL
Rob Marshall began his Broadway career as a director and choreographer on the stages of Roundabout Theatre Company. He played a key role in launching Roundabout’s Musical Theatre Program, first as the choreographer of She Loves Me in 1993 then of Company in 1995. In 1998 he was co-director with Sam Mendes and choreographer of our groundbreaking, Tony Award®-winning production of Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret. Later that year he made his solo Broadway directorial debut with Little Me, which he also choreographed. His other Broadway credits include Kiss of the Spider Woman, Damn Yankees, Victor/Victoria and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. When the film industry beckoned, Rob reignited the Hollywood musical with his Academy Award®-winning production of Chicago. His other films include Memoirs of a Geisha, Nine and last summer’s blockbuster, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Together, these films have been honored with a total of 23 Academy Award nominations, winning nine.
