CHICAGO – the bitter, brilliant Broadway musical first seen in 1975, featuring a score by John Kander (music) and Fred Ebb (lyrics) and book by Ebb and the late Bob Fosse (the show’s original director/choreographer) – at once celebrates and satirises certain very modern values.

CHICAGO finally reached a Broadway stage in 1975, with Gwen Verdon starring as Roxie, and Chita Rivera as Velma.

Having said that, some music is beautiful, "Class" being a gleaming example of Kander and Ebb's ballad-writing niche, sung by the butch character Mama Morton (this role being played with faultlessness by the powerful Meg Johnson).

 Chichi 'Chicago': The musical makes a movie comeback   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The movie "Chicago" is a funny, rousing crowd-pleaser that is already a big critical event: It captured the lion's share of Golden Globe nominations last week and is being hailed everywhere as one of the primary best-picture Oscar contenders.
And though the musical is filled with big production numbers and chorus lines of dancers, first-time feature director Rob Marshall (best known for his TV version of "Annie") stages it with an air of minimalist intimacy and bathed in shadows.
Basically, his method -- which is actually very close to the style of the London theatrical version -- is to play the story relatively straight in the foreground while using the musical numbers as fantasy comments on the action or as inner monologues of the characters.
