Last June 17th, I thought I would just be spending my Saturday at the skin clinic dealing with the crazy gigantic pimples partying on my chin. But oh, there was a pleasant surprise! I got to watch the longest running American musical in Broadway history – Chicago The Musical! The two lead actresses who made the 2015 performance a great success are back in Seoul! 🙂

Synopsis:

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickest lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

Here are the highlights of the show taken during the Press Rehearsal.

Curtain call

What makes Chicago one of the best is that it reminds us that musicals are about songs and performers, not scenery. When you have material and performances as dynamic as this, you don’t need chandeliers. The show was truly remarkable but it would be much better if they didn’t insert some Korean words in the script. 😛
