Joy, sorrow, elation -- from the moment it was written, Mozart's music has inspired a host of emotions. Amadeus, the brilliant stage play by Sir Peter Shaffer, focuses on one response: jealousy. Travel back to the Austrian imperial court where the emperor's chosen composer, Antonio Salieri, reigns supreme until the arrival of a daring young talent, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Coarse, foul-mouthed and graceless, Mozart is everything that Salieri is not, including (of course) a genius. Awarded the Best Play Tony in 1981, Amadeus returns to the stage on the 30th anniversary of its Academy-Award-winning film adaption by Milos Forman. City Lights Theater Company presents this provocative and thrilling tale from the celebrated writer of Equus and Black Comedy. Learn More

Lyrics by Fred Ebb
At last! City Lights brings you Chicago! It’s the roaring twenties, and vaudeville hopeful Roxie Hart kills her lover and convinces hapless hubby Amos to take the rap – until he finds out he’s been duped. Once in prison, Roxie and “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly vie for the spotlight and the headlines, joining forces with unscrupulous lawyer Billy Flynn to bamboozle the public, win their freedom, and rise to fame and fortune on the vaudeville circuit. The winner of numerous Tony and Academy Awards, this razor-sharp satire by Bob Fosse and the musical team behind Cabaret features one hit after another, including “Roxie,” “Razzle Dazzle,” “When You’re Good to Mama,” “Mister Cellophane,” and the unforgettable “All That Jazz.”
