The Tony award winning Chicago Musical revival is bringing back some razzle dazzle with veteran cast members from previous performances. Charlotte d’Amboise is revisiting her role as Roxie Hart.  We’ve got the full scoop and all that Jazz on the veteran cast returning to rock Chicago.

The Chicago Musical and All That Jazz

After 25 years of razzle dazzle, Chicago  is still a universal tale of fame, fortune, and murder. The musical centers on Roxie Hart, a fame-hungry chorus girl who murders her lover. She attempts cover up her actions and hires Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer. He turns her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. The musical is famous for its jazzy score, stunning choreography, and powerful female characters. Since it’s debut in 1975, Chicago has been honored with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, and a Grammy.

Behind the scenes of this current production is a tour de force of talent. In the director’s chair is Walter Bobbie featuring choreography by Ann Reinking. The production also will have the book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, with music by John Kander and lyrics written by Ebb.
