Winter 2016 MainStage- A MUSICAL VAUDEVILLE: CHICAGO
Coming this February to the Moore Theater: A MUSICAL VAUDEVILLE: CHICAGO
Book by Fred Ebb & Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Winner of six Tony Awards, and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!
Murder. Greed. Corruption. Treachery. Set amidst the flashy decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover and transforms her malicious crime into sensational headlines reminiscent of today’s tabloids. The edgy storyline is rocket-propelled by a tart, jazzy score featuring such Broadway standards as All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango, Mr. Cellophane and Razzle Dazzle.
