Chicago

Chicago is an American musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the "celebrity criminal."

The original Broadway production opened in 1975 at the 46th Street Theatre and ran for 936 performances until 1977. Bob Fosse choreographed the original production, and his style is strongly identified with the show. Following a West End debut in 1979 which ran for 600 performances, Chicago was revived on Broadway in 1996, and a year later in the West End.

The Broadway revival holds the record as the longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history. It is the second longest-running show in Broadway history, behind only The Phantom of the Opera, having played its 7,486th performance on November 23, 2014, surpassing Cats. The West End revival ran for nearly 15 years, becoming the longest-running American musical in West End history, and it has enjoyed several tours and international productions. The Academy Award-winning 2002 film version of the musical was directed by Rob Marshall and starred Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, John C. Reilly, and Queen Latifah.

And All That Jazz : SAB : Charles Beale : Chicago : Showtrax CD : 12-0571537820 : 9780571537822

Charles Beale : And All That Jazz

John Kander and Fred Ebb created a number of 20th-century show classics, including Cabaret and Kiss of the spider woman, but Chicago is perhaps their greatest and best-loved show of them all. On the surface "And All That Jazz" is a celebration of bohemian excess of every conceivable kind. Sing the fantastic, show-stopping melody with great energy, have a ball and relish the rich word painting. There is an underlying dark side, however, which shows itself at the end when Roxie murders her unfaithful husband in anger. Vibrato is appropriate and a clear, well-tuned, brash sound that carries a mile is more important than a refined, classically rounded tone here. Make sure the words are exceptionally clear and above all, prioritize telling the story. Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the pe

Razzle Dazzle : SAB : Charles Beale : Chicago : Sheet Music : 12-0571538053 : 9780571538058

Charles Beale : Razzle Dazzle

First performed in 1975, Chicago has become a true classic, and no other show better portrays decidedly questionable human characteristics. "Razzle Dazzle" features big-shot lawyer Billy Flynn. The lovely but naïve Roxie Hart stands accused of murder, which we know she committed. Here, Billy gleefully explains how to "razzle dazzle" a jury and indeed newspaper readers, using legal tricks to get your client off the charge. The law is portrayed as a glamorous show, with the trial participants as actors. The excess in the song slowly builds, so begin quietly but with excitement. This song is an opportunity to explore different vocal qualitie--from stage whispering and full-voice speaking to pure singing and belting. Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasi

We Both Reached for the Gun : SAB : Charles Beale : Chicago : Sheet Music : 12-0571538185 : 9780571538188

Charles Beale : We Both Reached for the Gun

Chicago is perhaps the greatest and best-loved creation of writing team John Kander and Fred Ebb. In "We Both Reached for the Gun," Roxie is accused of killing her violent lover and Flynn's argument is that they both "reached for the gun" at the same time--Roxie had no choice but to kill him, or she would have died. In the staging, Roxie is portrayed as Billy's mechanical puppet, which is why the music has a certain mechanical, even clockwork quality to it. This is a patter song, full of long streams of words, so take care not to go too fast. Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.

When You're Good to Mama : SAB : Charles Beale : Chicago : Sheet Music : 12-0571538193 : 9780571538195

Charles Beale : When You're Good to Mama

John Kander and Fred Ebb created a number of 20th-century show classics, including Cabaret and Kiss of the spider woman, but Chicago is perhaps their greatest and best-loved show of them all. Mama Moreton sings "When you're good to Mama" to indicate to the prison inmates how the world really works. She is deeply cynical, knows the ways of the world and controls the purse strings of the prison, but she also turns out to be compassionate --a mother figure to the other inmates. This song requires sassy singing and good communication skills; to convey the double meanings, use careful timing, facial expression and, for the more daring, staging too! Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.
