A CD/DVD box set celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Broadway revival of Chicago hits stores Oct 3 on the Masterworks Broadway label.

The recording, which coincides with the 10th anniversary gala performance of Chicago — Nov. 14 at the Ambassador Theatre — comprises two CDs and one DVD. The first CD is the complete Grammy-winning Broadway cast recording of the Kander and Ebb revival, which features performances by Bebe Neuwirth, Ann Reinking, James Naughton, Joel Grey, Marcia Lewis and D. Sabella.

The second CD boasts performances of Chicago tunes by a mix of U.S. and international stars, including Liza Minnelli, Jerry Orbach, Melanie Griffith, Brooke Shields, Gwen Verdon, Chita Rivera and Ute Lemper as well as demos of two songs cuts from the 1975 production of the musical. The demos were recorded by the show's composers, John Kander and the late Fred Ebb.

The DVD features interviews with various Chicago stars and creators, including actors Bebe Neuwirth and Ann Reinking, director Walter Bobbie, composer John Kander, musical director Rob Fisher and producers Barry and Fran Weissler. The DVD also includes footage from international productions of the hit musical and The Story of "Ten Percent," one of the songs cut from the original production.
