Chicago on Broadway at the Ambassador Theatre

This revival (and first successful) Broadway production of the 1975 Kander and Ebb musical is stunning. Though the actresses that have played Velma and Roxie since the 1996 opening could populate a small upstate penitentiary, the production and skillful work of composer John Kander, lyricist Fred Ebb, and original director/choreographer Bob Fosse (choreography recreated by the revival’s original Roxie, Ann Reinking) make this production a must see.

First Preview: October 23, 1996

Opening: November 14, 1996

Closing: Open-end run
