Bulgaria's National Theatre Ivan Vazov staged the pre-premiere of the first time ever theatre performance of the musical "All That Jazz" on Thursday.

This is the first theatre performance of the 1979 film musical of Bob Fosse ever done in the whole world.

The man behind this project is Boris Pankin. He translated, adapted for stage and directed the play.

"This will not only be the premiere of the musical, but also its world premiere, because no one has ever staged it before. This is also the biggest ever theatre performance in Bulgaria", said Pankin.

A total of 44 actors have been engaged to participate in the play. Spectators will see the actor Niki Sotirov as Joe Gideon and feel "all that that work, all that glitter, all that pain, all that love, all that crazy rhythm, all that jazz".

"All That Jazz" is made after the deconstructionist 1979 film musical by the same name of the director and choreographer Bob Fosse. In it he tells his own story as he details the sordid life of Joe Gideon, a womanising, drug-using dancer.
