Drury Lane Theatre has announced the complete lineup of its 2017-18 season, which will open with Chicago. The company has attained the exclusive rights to “revitalize” the sensational mega-hit with “home town authenticity.”

Chicago, featuring a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse with music by John Kander and lyrics by Ebb, will run March 30-June 11, 2017. Opening night is set for April 6, 2017.

Drury Lane’s artistic director William Osetek and choreographer Jane Lanier, the Tony-nominated student of Bob Fosse, will give a nod to the iconic Fosse flavor in this new take.
