John Kander and Fred Ebb's 1975 Prohibition-era musical, Chicago, was two decades ahead of its time. Originally conceived as a star turn for Broadway superstar Gwen Verdon by her ex-husband, director-choreographer Bob Fosse, Chicagowas revived in 1996. An immediate hit, the new Chicago was a revelation -- funny, sexy, and totally contemporary in its depiction of political greed and corruption. This wonderful recording captures the marvelous new cast -- Ann Reinking, Bebe Neuwirth, Joel Grey, James Naughton, and Marcia Lewis -- at the peak of their powers. The astonishing score, featuring "All That Jazz," "Roxie," "Razzle Dazzle," "Class," "Nowadays," and Grey's solo, "Mister Cellophane," is a veritable collection of showstoppers, all glimmering with seductive savvy and fundamental, if unpleasant, truths.

I love this show! This is an awesome recording. The London one is good, too. I recommend that one because of the stellar performance given by Ruthie Henshall as Roxie Hart. This show rocks!

This is the best recording of this great show. Contains songs such as Me & My Baby which ended up in the movie as instrumental only. Vocals are great.

This is not only my favorite musical, its my favorite music as well! I honestly cant get enough of the funny, sarcastic lyrics in this cd. This musical deserves every bit of praise it gets for its music as well as for its crazy characters. The show is a must see, and the cd is a must buy!! :) hope this was helpful!
