PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: "Pills, Pac-Man, Parking and Diva Prayers!" A Two-Show Day at Broadway's Chicago With "Mama" Carol Woods
24 Jun 2014
Theatre favorite Carol Woods is back in Broadway's Chicago playing her signature role: Matron "Mama" Morton. She shares a recent two-show day and shows the work that goes into becoming one of musical theatre's great diva characters.
The revival of Chicago began life as one of the three annual Encores! presentations offered by City Center. The musical opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in November 1996 where it remained through February 1997. The musical transferred to the Shubert Theatre on Feb. 11, 1997, and played that house through Jan. 26, 2003. The revival reopened at the Ambassador Theatre, its current home, on Jan. 29, 2003.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
