The cast and the show were wonderful. For such a small theater, they did a great job. I plan to go see another show at the Maverick. The only drawback is the seating. The chairs are very hard! I think next time I will bring a cushion.

Directed by Brian Newell & Curtis Jerome

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse

Music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb

The ‘20s come roaring back with a vengeance with the hit musical Chicago at the Maverick Theater. Directed and produced by the same team that brought such Maverick Theater hits as The Producers, Rent, Reefer Madness and this season’s The Wedding Singer. __

Chicago__ was the inspiration behind owner Brian Newell’s vision of the theater’s 1920 speakeasy look and feel. Newell wanted to open the theater in 2005 with Chicago but the rights have been unavailable until this year.

Based on the 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins (which was based on real events), Chicago is, as we are told in the show’s opening lines, “a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery — all the things we hold near and dear to our hearts." The story revolves around Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who dreams of starring in vaudeville. She kills her lover and convinces her husband to front the money to hire Chicago’s shrewdest defense lawyer. The lawyer, Billy Flynn, turns her crime of passion into celebrity headlines, and Roxie becomes the toast of Chicago — until other crimes pull the limelight away from her. __

Chicago__ was created by John Kander and Fred Ebb (known for their hit musicals Cabaret and Kiss of the Spider Woman) and Bob Fosse (famous for his innovative staging and choreography). It first opened on Broadway 1975 and the current Broadway revival is still running. In 2002 Miramax Films took the Tony Award-winning musical to the big screen where it became a box-office hit and subsequently won an Oscar for Best Picture that year.
