Now showing, Open Run

The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.

Photo Coverage: All that Jazz! CHICAGO Celebrates Record-Breaking 7,486 Performances

On Sunday, November 23 (7 p.m.), in a celebratory landmark performance, the company of Broadway's record-breaking hit musical Chicago welcomed back its four original stars -- Tony Award winners Ann Reinking, Bebe Neuwirth, James Naughton and Joel Grey. CHICAGO has surpassed the run of iconic Broadway blockbuster CATS with a record-breaking 7,486 performances, making it the second longest-running show in Broadway history. Only one show -- The Phantom of the Opera -- has run longer than Chicago.

BroadwayWorld was there for the after-party and brings you photos below!

It transferred to the Shubert Theatre in February 1997, and played there through January 26, 2003. The revival reopened at its current home -- the Ambassador Theatre -- three days later on January 29, 2003.
