A note from the director

Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to see a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery, - all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts.

So begins the musical CHICAGO  and creators John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse never back off from that bold and sinister promise. A promise they fulfill with wit, danger, dazzle, style, and a great deal of humor. The prickly delight of CHICAGO is that the musical is both showbiz savvy and thematically rich, so that while it sets toes tapping, it also entertains the mind.

 

But first, the story: Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who dreams of headlining in vaudeville, kill her lover, then convinces her husband to come up with $5,000 to hire CHICAGOs shrewdest lawyer, who ultimately turns her crime into celebrity headlines and gets his client acquitted. By telling its tale in the sexy jazzy of modern vaudeville, the kills(and there are five more of them)set out to seduce the audience as well as the jury.

300-Jazz2

This 1975 musical based on the 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins now looks like it was ripped from todays headlines. In recent years, America has experienced a new wave of celebrity trials. The abuses, manipulation of and by the press, and the complexity of our judicial system can make the search for truth and justice seem like different goals. CHICAGOs plot was shocking in 1926, cynical and satirical in 1975, and today feels like a documentary.

 

The motor of any musical is its score, and Kander and Ebb have written a hummer.Each song, enhanced by Ralph Burns brassy jazz band orchestrations, evokes the 1920s, reveals character, makes us laugh, drives the story, and simultaneously sustains an insistent beat, an edge which (like its characters) is as desperate to entertain as it is entertaining. A score of show-stop-pers.

Our production had its beginnings at City Centers Encores!Great American Musicals in Concert. It was conceived as an homage to Bob Fosse, one of the great theatrical minds of any generation. Rather than reproduce his 1975 Broadway production, we choose to reawaken its themes by honoring Fosses choreographic style, and filling his production with stylistic images that spanned his brilliant career, from DAMN YANKEES through SWEET CHARITY, PIPPIN, CABARET, and ALL THET JAZZ.

 

OUR minimalist set and lighting reflect CHICAGOs themes of entrapment. Less site-specific,the production moves fluidly not from place to place, but from one emotional context to the next. The characters in CHICAGO are trapped  either in prison and in the legal system, or trapped by their own fame, lust, greed, ambition. Likewise, our cast is trapped on stage, the orchestra confined in an exaggerated jury box, and our lighting shadows these images with prison bars and the glamorized solitude of the spotlight. Black became the color  black, and of course, skin. And though this production enjoys a conceptual departure form the 1975 Broadway original, stripping CHICAGO bare has revealed a piece of writing sturdier, richer, funnier and certainly more relevant than ever. Ive always loved this show  you be the judge.

Enjoyand all that jazz!

Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery…all thosethings we hold near and dear to our hearts”…so begins the international award winning musical, CHICAGO starring GARY WILMOT as Billy Flynn.

 

Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920s, nightclub singer RoxieHart shoots her lover and along with Cell Block rival, double-murderessVelma Kelly, they fight to keep from death row with the help of smoothtalking lawyer, Billy Flynn.

 

Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb andlegendary choreographer Bob Fosse, CHICAGO’s sexy, sassy score includes“All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle”. With 6 Tony, 2 Olivier, 1 Grammy, 2Bafta and 6 Academy Awards, CHICAGO truly is “The sharpest, slickest showon the block” The Times.

 

A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cellblock of sin: it would be a crime to miss it.

 

 

BOB FOSSE

The  legendary  director and  choreographer  Bob  Fosse  had  the  vision forCHICAGO in 1975 when he  obtained the rights from the original book writerMaurine Watkins.  He joined  forces  with the  musical team  of John  Kanderand  Fred  Ebb  who  had  previously   written  Cabaret,  to  create  the  firstversion  of the  musical CHICAGO.  This  starred Gwen  Verdon,  Chita Riveraand Jerry Orbach and ran for two years. Cut to 1995  when director Walter Bobbie, who  was artistic director of NewYork’s  City  Center  Encores!  series,  decided  to  revisit  the  work,  payinghomage  to  the   late  Bob  Fosse  in   partnership  with  choreographer  andlongtime Fosse  protege Ann Reinking.  With four Tony  Awards to its  credit,the show moved from  the City Center stage to the Broadway  stage where itopened on  14 November  1996 and became  the most  talked about show  ofthe decade. In  the   subsequent  years  this   show  about   notoriety  and  celebrity   hasconsistently attracted some of  the most glamorous and talented  performersaround:  including Ute  Lemper, Ruthie  Henshall,  Denise Van  Outen, SachaDistel, Claire Sweeney, Alison Moyet, Marti Pellow, George Hamilton,  JimmyOsmond,  Gary   Wilmot,  Melanie  Griffith,   Les  Dennis,  Gregory   Harrison,Michael Greco, Gaby  Roslin, Kevin Richardson, Billy Zane,  David Hasselhoff,Jennifer  Ellison,   Patrick  Swayze,  Jill   Halfpenny,  Lynda   Carter,  AshleeSimpson and Brooke Shields.
