October 03, 1987|United Press International

NEW YORK — Director and choreographer Bob Fosse left $100,000 in a will filed in court Friday to establish a theater scholarship and $25,000 to more than 50 celebrities to "have dinner on me."

Fosse's estate was worth more than $500,000, the will filed in New York Surrogate's Court showed. Fosse, 60, died Sept. 23 in Washington.

In addition to the scholarship, the 1985 testament left $25,000 to a list of more than 50 theater, movie and literary celebrities--including Dustin Hoffman, Ben Vereen, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Elia Kazan, and E. L. Doctorow--to "go out and have dinner on me."

"They all have at one time or another during my life been very kind to me," Fosse wrote.
