Bobbie and I are originally from Chicago. His musical, based on his semi-autobigraphy, `All That Jazz`, was praised by the critics. I, too, had a musical on Broadway based upon my life. It was called, `All That Gas.` The critcs walked out on it during the first performance because they said `All That Gas` stunk.
