A to Z Challenge: Chicago the Musical

Today, I'm switching over to musical theater. At one time I did write about theater for this site. Why am I picking Chicago besides the fact it starts with a C? It was the first National Touring musical that I ever went to see back in 2002. I won tickets from a fabulous record store (remember them?).

What's not to like the musical has catchy songs, an easy to follow plot, eye candy, and "All That Jazz". We caught the show at The Lyric, a beautiful venue in Baltimore, Maryland.

It was back on mind since, I just watched another touring version of the show in February in Pensacola.

That tour is playing sat The Kennedy Center now through  April 16, with Grammy Award winning singer Brandy Norwood portraying Roxie.

 I notice there were some small differences since the last time I witness the performance, which was nice. Seeing the show before, watching the movie version you do get used to the show.

This is just a quick post on /c and /i will be back with a D post soon.

I have never seen Chicago, movie or live version. *hangs head in shame*

I've only seen the movie version, but the touring musical is making it's way to Kentucky next year, so I will see it then.

Probably the only national touring musical I've seen. A redhead played Roxie. John O'Hurley played Billy Flynn.

I'm a big fan of musicals, but this is one I'm not real familiar with. I think I've seen the entire movie at some time--or at least a number of excerpts. I need to watch this one again.
