Chicago: The Musical, in Theater – 2022 Performance Schedule
“All publicity is good publicity.” It’s an eye-rolling phrase modernized by influencers and socialites in the Kardashian age. However, the absolute truth is that this sentiment dates back over a century. Don’t believe us? Just watch Chicago: The Musical.
This highly-acclaimed musical is set in the 1920s jazz era as two women simultaneously battle it out for fame, fortune, and freedom from the law, performing a series of iconic jazz numbers in the meantime. And did we mention that American icon Pamela Anderson will be taking on the lead role of Roxie Hart in her Broadway debut this spring? You can see the Baywatch babe perform in New York City from April 12th through June 5th, while Chicago: The Musical has other productions in Washington DC, Memphis, TN, and Stratford, ON, throughout 2022-2023.
“I have always been a huge fan of Bob Fosse’s & Gwen Verdon’s work,” the 54-year-old actress told Deadline. “Ann Reinking, too. Playing Roxie Hart is a dream fulfilled.” Chicago: The Musical premiered on the Great White Way in 1975 and has become the second longest-running show on Broadway, only after Phantom of the Opera. Anderson intends to put her own spin on this classic show, and fans from every generation can’t wait to see her skills.
“Performing Fosse, you don’t have time to get in your head. You can’t dance, sing and think at the same time,” Anderson continued. “There is a freedom, a unique joy in knowing it’s all about the work. Playing Roxie Hart is a sweet escape for me.” You’ve likely heard the hit songs in a million cabaret shows and piano bars. “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango,” “Razzle Dazzle,” “Mister Cellophane.” Can you imagine the sexiness of Pamela Anderson taking on these legendary tunes?
All of them tell a story of how two women who murdered their lovers get wrapped up in a media storm that will make or break them. How can Velma Kelly beat out Roxie Hart for vaudeville stardom when they share a lawyer, and only one can have the spotlight? How can they continue with their rising fame when execution comes into play? It’s an intense tale of celebrity crime and the quest for fame that’s far before it’s time, and you’ll be wrapped up in the dramatic storylines and spicy dance numbers from start to finish.
