Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

After establishing himself as a Tony Award-winning choreographer, Rob Marshall made the rare transition to accomplished film director with the acclaimed feature adaptation of the popular stage musical, "Chicago" (2002). Prior to his feature success, Marshall earned a reputation on Broadway as one of the finest choreographers working in the business, thanks to his work on such hits as "Kiss of the Spider Woman" (1993), "Damn Yankees" (1994) and "Cabaret" (1998). Though "Chicago" put him on the Hollywood map, Marshall actually made his screen debut with a television adaptation of the musical "Annie" (ABC, 1999), which starred Kathy Bates and earned the director his first Emmy Award. Marshall made his first foray into non-musical territory with a solid take on Arthur Golden's "Memoirs of a Geisha" (2005), which did allow him put on his choreographer hat for an elaborate ceremonial dance. Though not as revered as "Chicago," his second feature effort attracted Academy attention and informed critics that Marshall was a legitimate talent. With his third feature, the eagerly-awaited musical "Nine" (2009), Marshall was on firm ground to make his case for being one of Hollywood's premiere directors. ...
