The Actorsingers

Presenting Community Theatre since 1955

CHICAGO PROGRAM COVERChicago is a musical set in Prohibition-era Chicago. The music is by John Kander with lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse.

The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.”

The musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on.

The original Broadway production opened June 3, 1975, at the 46th Street Theatre and ran for 936 performances.

Bob Fosse choreographed the original production, and his style is strongly identified with the show.

Chicago’s 1996 Broadway revival holds the record for the longest-running musical revival on Broadway and is its fourth longest-running show. (source wikipedia)
