A true New York City institution, CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen.

No wonder CHICAGO has been honored with Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations.

It’s also no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow from Sao Paulo to South Africa.

Whether you’re looking for your first Broadway musical, whether you’ve seen the Academy Award-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you’ve seen it before and want to recapture the magic, CHICAGO always delivers.

A sensational tale of sin, corruption and “All That Jazz”, Chicago has everything you could want in a musical: knockout dancing, an edge-of-your-seat story, and one showstopper after another.

Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro and Tony® winner Jerry Zaks direct this streetwise musical—based on Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri’s story—that amNewYork called, “Jersey Boys meets West Side Story.”

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY has won Best Musical all across North America!

The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded airline passengers and the small town of Gander, Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

I had the privilege to meet the Pilot of the plane that this show is about at. She was so gracious. WOW! Sure to please—come join us!
