The Festival has secured the rights to the first major production of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago outside of New York and London in 30 years! Chicago is a musical for our time. It’s about celebrity culture, corruption, lawyers and cynicism. It’s about the power of leveraging all your assets to do the wrong thing. And it’s filled with incredible music!
Barry Weissler, who controls the rights to Chicago, is a huge fan of the Stratford Festival and because of his enormous faith in director-choreographer Donna Feore, he went out of his way to allow the Festival to do an entirely new production here in Canada.
The hit musical, which holds the record for longest running musical revival on Broadway, will be entirely reimagined by Feore, whose work with musicals on the Festival stage has transformed classics and transfixed audiences. Under her creative guidance, this magnificent production will be created especially for the Festival’s thrust stage and unlike any version of the show you may have seen before.
