Orchestrator Bill Elliott’s reimagined and deconstructed soundscape is full of surprises, providing a fresh perspective for approaching Kander’s music. Fisher, Kander, Elliott, and librettist Tom Thompson collaborated on the concert production.

Next year, Chicago The Musical—In Concert will play Kander’s hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, with the Kansas City Symphony from January 24–26, 2020. Casting for the Kansas City engagement will be announced soon.

The Tony-winning revival of Chicago continues at Broadway's Ambassador Theatre. Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
