The weather was sunny and warm.. I wore jeans and a white shirt with bow-tie and black sportcoat. Here's the deal, this isn't a "dressy" event. This is a production by Georgetown Law students. But for goodness' sake, people, it's good to dress up anyway. It shows you respect yourself, the place you're going, the people you're going to see, and the people you're going with. Wear jeans to dress it down, but a sport coat and nice shirt are perfectly good for a nice show like this. .

I'd seen Chicago before on stage and screen, but this GGSS production was like seeing it for the fiorst time. All performers portrayed their roles with effervescent artistry. The coziness of the venue added to the enjoyment.

The show seemed to be very well rehearsed, and the venue was intimate, but altogether the show was too big for the performers.

Description

Chicago opened at the 46th Street Theatre in June 1975, with a cast that included Gwen Verdon (Roxie), Chita Rivera (Velma) and Jerry Orbach (Billy). Although the show enjoyed a run of 898 performances, it was overshadowed by the popularity of A Chorus Line, which opened the same year. Chicago remained one of Broadway’s most underappreciated gems until 1997, when it was revived on Broadway with choreography by Ann Reinking “in the style of Bob Fosse.” This production went on to win 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Lighting Design, Best Choreography and Best Direction of a Musical.
