THE SCREENING ROOM: Celebrating the Chicago Revival (Video)
14 Nov 2012
The acclaimed revival of Kander and Ebb's Chicago opened to critical raves Nov. 14 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 1996, after a celebrated run at City Center Encores! It now plays the Ambassador Theatre.
Walter Bobbie's stripped-down staging, utilizing Bob Fosse-inspired choreography by Ann Reinking, became the new model for Chicago, which has now been seen across the globe and in a hit film adaptation.
Here's a look at various Chicago performances from the original production, the revival, the film and beyond!
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
