CHICAGO THE MUSICAL 20th Anniversary JAPAN TOUR August 2-13, 2017 TOKYU THEATRE ORB CHI2017_key_visual_other Chicago, which opened to rave reviews on November 14, 1996 and now in its 20th year on Broadway is the longest running AMERICAN musical shows no sign of ever slowing down! Chicago is the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she 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 likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.” Chicago is produced by the Tony Award Producing Team Barry and Fran Weissler and legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
