Reopening Marks 25th Anniversary – Deadline

Chicago will return to Broadway just in time for its 25th anniversary: ​​the musical is set to reopen at the Ambassador Theater on Tuesday, September 14.

The musical Kander-Ebb-Fosse becomes the third Broadway production to stage its reopening since New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that theaters could reopen in September at 100% capacity. Producers Barry and Fran Weissler announced today that tickets are now on sale for the Tony Award winner Chicago.

Like with The Phantom of the Opera and Six – the two musicals that announced their fall return earlier this week – the reopening of Chicago is subject to the approval of the New York State Department of Health and the Governor.

In their announcement today, the Weisslers noted: “The approval of the Department of Health and the governor will be based on the continued growth of the fully vaccinated population, coupled with a continued decline in the total number of Covid cases. 19 and positivity rates. The Department of Health and the Governor will review and approve theater health protocols established by the theater owner to ensure the highest safety standards are in place as communicated by the theater owners.

Cuomo said this week that performance at full capacity will depend on sites requiring proof of Covid vaccination or negative test results. Masks may also be necessary.

Directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking, Chicago features music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. The production won six 1997 Tony Awards (including Best Musical Revival) and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Recording.

Chicago is also playing a limited engagement until July 18 at the Daesung D-Cube Arts Center in Seoul, South Korea, and a UK tour kicks off in September in Glasgow. Additional productions are planned for 2022 in Brazil and China.

Production includes set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer.

Set in the 1920s, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her sideways lover after threatening to go out on her. To avoid conviction, she tricks the public, the media, and her rival cellmate Velma Kelly into hiring Chicago’s most skilled criminal lawyer to turn her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.

The cast has not been announced for the reopening of Broadway.
