Chicago Still Razzle Dazzles Audiences

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Oct. 14, 2022 – Chicago is painting the town and bringing all that jazz to Walton Arts Center for just eight performances Nov. 8 through 13, as part of the Procter & Gamble Broadway Series.

The award-winning musical is celebrating its 25-year run on Broadway, a feat which reflects the appeal of its stunning musical numbers and villainous characters that have drawn audiences to see the show again and again.

Chicago is a universal tale of fame, fortune and murder. Told through one hit song after another, it chronicles two death row murderesses as they vie for fame and the attention of a sleezy lawyer. Entertainment Weekly named the production “Broadway’s most electrifying show.”

As the longest-running American musical, Chicago still features elements of the original 1970s production, such as choreography from Broadway icon Bob Fosse and showstopping songs and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, respectively. Thirty-three million people worldwide have watched Chicago, and it has earned six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy®.

Patrons 21 and older can mix up their night at the theater with a preshow cocktail class on Friday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 pm. Our master mixologist will teach attendees to make two specialty drinks, paired with light appetizers. Tickets to the Chicago cocktail class can be purchased when you purchase show tickets.

It would be a crime to miss this. Tickets start at $41 and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office weekdays 10 am until 2 pm, by calling 479.443.5600 weekdays 10 am until 5 pm or by visiting
