CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. It’s no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa. And now it’s coming to your town!Whether you’re looking for your first Broadway musical, whether you’ve seen the Academy Award®-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you’ve seen it before and want to recapture the magic, CHICAGO always delivers!
Chicago, which opened to rave reviews on November 14, 1996 and now in it’s 20th year on Broadway is the longest running AMERICAN musical shows no sign of ever slowing down!Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the GrammyAward 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 story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.” Chicago is produced by the Tony Award Producing Team Barry and Fran Weissler and legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
There’s never been a better time to experience CHICAGO, Broadway’s razzle-dazzle smash. This triumphant hit musical is the recipient of six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy®, thousands of standing ovations and now the #1 longest-running American Musical in Broadway history.
Although it’s simple in its presentation, kids who appreciate Broadway will certainly respond to the exciting theatricality of this long-running hit. Parents should be warned of the show’s hot topics, including murder, violence and adultery, as well as some off-color dialogue. But in comparison to what’s on TV these days, it’s pretty tame.
2 hours and 30 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
