Broadway In Chicago is pleased to announce the Tony Award® winning smash-hit CHICAGO returns to its title city for a limited one-week engagement at Bank of America Theatre (18 West Monroe) from Feb. 25 – March 2, 2014.
CHICAGO opened to rave reviews on November 14th, 1996, and now has the distinction of being the longest running American musical in Broadway history and shows no sign of ever slowing down!
Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler with a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse and music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, CHICAGO is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
The national tour is directed by David Hyslop and choreographed by David Bushman. Walter Bobbie is the director of the original New York Production and Ann Reinking the original choreographer in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer. The production also features orchestrations by Ralph Burns, supervising music direction by Rob Fisher.
CHICAGO is a production not to be missed and all the reviewers agree: Time Magazine calls it “A Triumph,” Newsweek raves “Smashing” and Entertainment Weekly sums it up by calling CHICAGO “Broadway’s Most Electrifying Show.”
