High School Edition
by Fred Ebb, Bob Fosse, John Kander, Maurine Dallas Watkins
Musical Direction by Luke Williams
Choreographed by Casey Leigh Thompson
Directed by Marc Tumminelli
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse. Chicago is currently in it’s 23rd year on Broadway and is the longest running American musical in Broadway history! The Broadway Workshop re-staging of Chicago will feature two casts, lavish sets and costumes, a live orchestra and will mark the 10th Anniversary of the Main Stage program.
Due to the state of emergency and the assembly rules set by the city, we are currently working with our cast and creative team to find alternate dates to present CHICAGO. If you have already purchased tickets you will be contacted by the riverside theater box office.
