‘Chicago’ gets up close and personal on WGCU


Musical composer John Kander is on everyone’s mind lately. The 96-year old recently teamed up with Lin-Manuel Miranda for a new broadway Blockbuster, New York, New York. And Season 2 of Schmigadoon takes place in Schmicago, a fictional world where theater geeks revel in parodies of the dark, sultry musicals of the 70s and 80s such as Pippin, Sweeney Todd, and of course, Chicago.

It is against this backdrop that Gypsy Playhouse at Robin Dawn Dance Academy in the Cape is producing Chicago. While the music of Kander and Ebb is reason enough to attend one of Gypsy’s four performances of the show, what differentiates this production from the movie and every other live performance of the musical that you may have seen is the setting. Listen (or read) on WGCU to why this makes such a huge difference.
