The Teatro Brancaccio hosts the musical's great classic, which returns to the Italian stage after nineteen years in an explosive and engaging production directed by Chiara Noschese and choreographed by Franco Miseria.
Chicago was born from the talent of three extraordinary artists - John Kander for the music, Fred Ebb for the lyrics and the libretto, written with the director and choreographer Bob Fosse - achieving incredible success since its debut on Broadway in the 1990s. Over the years, it has been performed in international theatres in 36 countries worldwide and earned numerous awards, including 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards and a Grammy.
The show, which inspired Rob Marshall's Award-winning 2002 film of the same name, is set in the city of Illinois in the 1920s and tells the story of Roxie Hart, a nightclub singer convicted of the murder of her lover. In prison, the woman meets another killer, the jazz singer and her idol, Velma, with whom she conspires to obtain lost freedom and celebrity with the help of the lawyer Billy Flynn.
On stage, an extraordinary cast, including the director Chiara Noschese in the role of Mama Morton and Stefania Rocca as the sensual and mysterious Velma, together with Giulia Sol (Roxie Hart), Brian Boccuni (Billy Flynn), Cristian Ruiz (Amos Hart ) and Luca Giacomelli Ferrarini (Mary Sunshine), accompanied by unforgettable jazz music and amazing choreography, with scenes by Lele Moreschi and costumes by Ivan Stefanutti.
