Hotter than a

story of Roxie Hart (now played by "Taxi"'s Marilu Henner), a
down-and-out chorine who grabs fame and fortune by murdering her gangster
lover started this exciting season with flash and sexy fire. Ben Brantley
in the New York Times raves, "This new incarnation, directed by
Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking...makes an exhilarating
case... for CHICAGO as a musical for the ages...Bebe Neuwirth plays
Roxie's jailhouse rival Velma, in a vampy, sexy performance."
Brantley praises: "Ms. Neuwirth has translated her dead-pan comic
persona and technical proficiency as a dancer into an ecstatic benchmark
performance...to see her turn her legs into a pair of air-slicing
scissors, her face set in a bewitching expression of self-satisfaction, is
like falling in love, against your better judgement, with a specialist in

Since Robert Louis
Stevenson wrote "The Strange Tale of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde"
in 1886, we've all been looking in the mirror a little more carefully,
trying to find the monster inside. Now one of the most anticipated shows
in years, JEKYLL & HYDE, is finally here on Broadway, with music
composed by Frank Wildhorn, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. Stevenson's
horrific yet compassionate story combines perfectly with a soaring score
that culminates in what Bricusse calls "the ultimate duet":
Jekyll & Hyde singing together through the mirror, dark and light.
Howard Kissel in the Daily News says, "Several numbers - notably
'This Is The Moment," and 'Someone Like You' - are genuinely
moving...Robin Phillips has directed and designed the show in the grand
manner it requires and has drawn superb performances from his
cast...Robert Cuccioli...is sensational in the title roles...Like
Phillips' evocative sets, Ann Curtis' costumes capture the period
beautifully. Beverly Emmons' lighting adds immensely to the drama..."
And even an unlikely critic like talk-show host Larry King has weighed in:
"JEKYLL & HYDE...is the best musical I've ever seen. It should
run forever!" Let your monster loose - see JEKYLL & HYDE today!

challenge of THE LION KING will be to make the stage version an actual
theatricalization of a script which millions of people have enjoyed - it
won't simple be a film brought to life. I am excited that we are combining
Elton John and Tim Rice's music with a blend of rhythms and sound which
will create something new and exciting for Broadway." So says
director Julie Taymor about bringing Disney's extraordinarily popular
movie THE LION KING to the Broadway stage.
thought that the story of Simba the lion's journey from betrayal to
redemption could be done on the live stage, but as a director who
incorporates fantastic puppets and masks in her work, Taymor is known for
doing the impossible, and THE LION KING will be her greatest achievement.
Mufasa, Simba, Scar, Timon, Pumba and all your favorites will come to life
on the stage of the newly restored New Amsterdam Theatre, looking familiar
and very new. Taymor's costumes are incredible, allowing us to see the
actor as well as envisioning the animal. Her creations go beyond mere
puppetry - they are animated sculpture.
choreography of Garth Fagin brings movement to such familiar songs as
"Hakuna Matata" and "Can't You Feel the Love Tonight?"
as well as 4 new songs. THE LION KING is the highlight of the season
- plan ahead!

RENT is still
rocking Broadway! RENT is a 1990s rock opera based on Puccini's "La
Boheme," an exhilarating and explosive story of struggling artists
reaching for glory in New York's East Village. Three love stories
intertwine as a group of friends deal with love, death, loyalty, AIDS,
rent strikes, and the end of the millennium. The New York Times calls it a
"charming, poignant rock opera...there's no denying that Mr. Larson
discovered a winningly accessible and ground-breaking musical formula that
combines rock's drive, pop's memory-grabbing melodiousness and the
leitmotifs and harmonic counterpoints of opera."
