Chicago anni '20. Vuoi diventare famosa nel mondo dello spettacolo? E' semplice, commetti un omicidio e finisci in galera, trovati un avvocato con una buona parlantina e amico dei giornalisti e il gioco è fatto: da semplice ballerina di fila puoi diventare una star del Vaudeville. E' quello che accade a Roxie Hart, illusa da un uomo che le promette di farla entrare nello showbiz dalla porta principale e che invece si rivela un imbroglione. Roxie lo uccide e viene incarcerata nella stessa cella di Velma Kelly, starlette osannata dalla stampa di Chicago - finita in prigione per l'omicidio di sua sorella e di suo marito, dopo aver scoperto una relazione tra i due. Grazie all'aiuto dell'avvocato Billy Fynn, più avvezzo alle pubbliche relazioni che alle arringhe in tribunale, Roxie guadagna terreno sui giornali fino a scalzare il successo di Velma. Ma si sa che il mondo è pieno di giovani carine pronte a tutto per raggiungere l'Olimpo, così Roxie e Velma si vedranno costrette a unire le loro forze contro la minaccia della pluriomicida Go-to-Hell Kitty

Colored lights : forty years of words and music, show biz, collaboration, and all that jazz by John Kander( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The autobiography, in dialogue, of the composer and lyricist of Chicago and Cabaret as well as a wise and witty memoir of forty years of American musicals. Composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb are the longest-running composer-lyricist team in Broadway history, having first joined forces in 1962. The creators of such groundbreaking musicals as Chicago, Cabaret, and Kiss of the Spider Woman, Kander and Ebb have helped to push American musical theater in a more daring direction, both musically and dramatically. Their impact on individual performers has been great as well, starting with the handpicked star of their first musical: an untested nineteen-year-old named Liza Minnelli (who writes of this experience in her introduction). Colored Lights covers the major shows of Kander and Ebb's partnership, from Flora, The Red Menace (starring a then-unknown Liza) to The Visit, due to open on Broadway in 2004. The pages and musicals in between reveal what has made theirs such a long-lived musical partnership--and one so valued by the artists they have worked with. In recounting the genesis and controversies of Cabaret, reflecting on the superstar mentality of such artist as Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand, and recalling their work with Bob Fosse on Chicago (as well as their views on the blockbuster 2002 film), John Kander and Fred Ebb provide a history not only of their own lives but also of the American musical theater of the late twentieth century
American musicals, 1950-1969 : the complete books & lyrics of eight Broadway classics( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this second volume of a two-volume collector's edition, The Library of America presents eight enduring masterpieces showcasing the genre's glorious mid-century flowering and and its response to the turbulent 1960s. Based on new research, the complete libretto of each musical is presented in its Broadway opening night version, making these beloved cultural treasures available as never before. The texts are supplemented with additional song lyrics, biographical sketches of the musicals' creators, original cast lists, detailed accounts of each show's sources and production history, textual and explanatory notes, and full-color portfolios of illustrations featuring posters and photographs from each musical's original Broadway run. This volume showcases eight enduring works from the genre's Golden Age: Guys and Dolls (1950) by Frank Loesser, Jo Swerling, and Abe Burrows brings Damon Runyon's gamblers and chorus girls to vivid life; The Pajama Game (1954) by George Abbott, Richard Bissell, Richard Adler, and Jerry Ross offers a lighthearted take on the relations between capital and labor; My Fair Lady (1956), Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's glittering adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, a box-office sensation that elevated the tone of the American musical; Gypsy (1959) by Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne, and Stephen Sondheim embraces the relentless ambitions of the ultimate stage mother to frame a poignant look at the vanishing traditions of vaudeville; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962) by Burt Shevelove, Larry Gelbart, and Stephen Sondheim, a joyously farcical romp set in ancient Rome; the heartbreaking Fiddler on the Roof (1964) by Joseph Stein, Jerry Bock, and Sheldon Harnick, based on Sholem Aleichem's haunting tales of life and changing times in a Russian shtetl; Cabaret (1966) by Joe Masteroff, John Kander, and Fred Ebb, which views a political crisis through the prism of a Weimar nightclub; and the playfully irreverent 1776 (1969) by Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards, a brilliantly drawn character study of the Founding Fathers on the eve of Independence [Publisher description]

Premiering in 1975 and the hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center's Encore! series, Chicago won six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.
