Today in the Tony Awards Clip Countdown we are setting our sights on one of the most notable early examples of mega-star casting on Broadway - that of none other than the iconic Katharine Hepburn - in a brand new musical composed by Andre Previn and staged by a young Michael Bennett : COCO. One of the most celebrated clips in Tony Awards history, the fifteen-minute dialogue scene and ensuing production number is nothing like we have ever seen on the show before or since - this puts the razzle in razzle dazzle, for shizzle. Skip to main content Skip to footer site map. Finding earthy gravitas and imbuing an undeniable American East Coast air to almost everything she did, Katharine Hepburn may not have seemed the first choice for the role of Coco Chanel in a new biomusical about her life - yet, in a career defined by defying the odds, she characteristically took on the challenge and made the role unmistakably all her own. Surrounding the non-singing, non-dancing lead with a fetching and feisty corps of chorus girls, boys and models, as well as committed and memorable performances by the spirited original cast members, largely covered most of the most outright flaws and the positively mind-blowing staging for the musical numbers by a then-up-and-coming Michael Bennett gave new meaning to razzle dazzle wow-factor.

It starred Katharine Hepburn in her only stage musical. Theatre producer Frederick Brisson originally had optioned Chanel 's life for his wife Rosalind Russell , but Russell had developed acute arthritis , making it difficult for her to function. That meant another leading lady with star quality needed to be found. Irene Selznick suggested Katharine Hepburn , who initially scoffed at the idea of appearing in a musical but agreed to work with former MGM vocal coach Roger Edens for ten days. Following an audition in Selznick's suite at The Pierre Hotel , Hepburn felt comfortable enough to mull seriously the proposition, and was further convinced to accept the offer after meeting Chanel. Lerner had assured the designer his book would cover only the early years of her life and career, and she was distressed when the plan was jettisoned to accommodate the older star. The highly fictionalized book and score underwent massive revisions and were far from complete when Hepburn concluded filming on The Madwoman of Chaillot , at which time she was scheduled to begin work on the show, and Coco was postponed a season while its creators worked on it.
