E!, the cable TV service, plans to cover the opening night of Chicago on Broadway live from the Richard Rodgers Theatre 6:30-7 PM (ET) Thursday Nov. 14.
Reinking also choreographed this revival ("in the style of" the original, Bob Fosse) of the 1975 John Kander & Fred Ebb musical about a woman catapulted to fame and fortune when she becomes the subject of a sensationalistic murder trial.
Just days later, on Monday, Nov. 18, the cast will go into the recording studio to make a cast album for RCA. Release is tentatively scheduled for January 1997.
The E! special will be rebroadcast several times in the ensuing weeks.
