Celebrating our 43nd Production
"The hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center's Encore! series of Great American Musicals in Concert, Chicago won six Tony awards including best revival. In razzle dazzle, roaring twenties Chicago, married chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover. Roxie and another murderess on death row vie for the spotlight and the headlines, hoping the publicity will catapult them to fame, freedom and successful stage careers. This sharp edged murder, exploitation and treachery features a dazzling score that sparked, in the original production, some immortal choreography by Bob Fosse."
The score, with music and lyrics by Fred Ebb and John Kander, includes the following songs you may be familiar with from the 2002 movie that starred Renee Zellweger, Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta-Jones: All I Care About, And All That Jazz, Class, Funny Honey, Mister Cellophane, Nowadays, Razzle Dazzle and When You're Good to Mama.
