Musicals intended to display dance sequences were created in the later 1900s in shows like "Cabaret," "A Chorus Line" and "Cats." Some of the more well-known choreographers of the later 20th century include Bob Fosse, who encouraged sensuality in movement; Jerome Robbins, who believed that dance could tell a story; and Gary Chapman, whose choreography extended beyond dance into regular stage movements. Most currently shows such as Annie and Chitty chitty bang bang have created a surge in musical theatre.
