The Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of the musical “Chicago” will celebrate its 26th anniversary on Monday, November 14.
The show tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer in the 1920s who murders her lover and then dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.
The revival, which was directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking, features a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse and music by John Kander and lyrics by Ebb.
The current cast of “Chicago” features Charlotte d’Amboise as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Ryan Silverman as Billy Flynn, Charity Angél Dawson as Matron “Mama” Morton, Isaac Mizrahi as Amos Hart and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
The cast also includes David Bushman, Jennifer Dunne, Jessica Ernest, Jeff Gorti, Arian Keddell, Mary Claire King, Joseph London, Barrett Martin, Sharon Moore, Drew Nellessen, Celina Nightengale, Brian O'Brien, Denny Paschall, Jermaine R. Rembert, Rachel Schur, Michael Scirrotto, Christine Cornish Smith, and Brian Spitulnik.
