Broadway in Springfield

Chicago: The Musical

 

Experience the longest-running American musical in Broadway history March 13-14 at Sangamon Auditorium. Now in its 20th year on Broadway, Chicago: The Musical has garnered six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations from audiences all around the world. The 1975 Broadway musical, with a score by Fred Ebb, choreography by Bob Fosse, and a book penned by both Ebb and Fosse, was inspired by a 1926 play by the same name, written by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about the criminals and crimes she encountered during her work as a journalist. Today, Chicago is widely acclaimed as a beacon of everything that makes Broadway great, such as powerful songs, astonishing dancing and “a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz.” To purchase tickets for Chicago: The Musical, visit http://sangamonauditorium.org or call the Sangamon Auditorium box office at 206-6160.
