Broadway hit musical Chicago runs till December 21

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - The sensational Broadway and West End musical Chicago sets the stage on fire night after night during its highly anticipated Manila season, playing only until December 21, 2014 at The Theatre at Solaire. Broadway’s #1 longest-running American Musical is presented in the Philippines by VISA and SMART Infinity, in cooperation with Solaire Resort and Casino.

Chicago’s witty punch lines, sizzling choreography and jazz-infused melodies continue to dazzle audiences in Manila - its only Southeast Asian destination this year. With countless standing ovations so generously given by Manila theater goers, it would be a crime not to see this serial showstopper.

The Premiere of the show marked the grand opening of the country’s newest theatrical luxury hotspot – The Theatre at Solaire. The gleaming 1760-seat theater has been specially constructed to house the big Broadway and West End shows, in recognition of the Filipino appetite for musical theater, and firmly placing Manila on the international touring circuit. This fan-shaped lyric theater with a seating capacity of 1,760 is ideal for all forms of  performing arts — be it musical theater, opera, concerto, pop concert, ballet, awards night, competition, circus act, kiddie show or corporate events.

Set amid the opulence of the 1920s prohibition era, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer with aspirations of becoming a Vaudeville star, who murders her on-the-side-lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

The Manila season of Chicago runs until December 21, with no extension possible. Visit www.CHICAGOTheMusical.comfor more information.  Tickets are on sale through TicketWorld. Call 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph.

CHICAGO is produced in Manila by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, David Atkins Enterprises and Concertus Manila.
