A Broadway phenomenon since its inception in 1975, Chicago puts the BAD in, well bad-ass dames. A scorching musical satire on celebrity and crime, Chicago is a fearless portrayal of the pursuit of infamy that rings true in any decade. Set in 1920s Chicago, the tale focuses on two women both accused of murdering their lovers, and their insidious journey to freedom, justice be damned. The world's longest musical revival is currently on a hugely successful North American tour, so break out the fish-nets, tap shoes and practice your jazz hands!

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

First making its bow on the Great White Way in 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein's evergreen classic Oklahoma! whisked early audiences away from the stark realities of World War II and offered up a song-filled optimism and unity. Reclaiming its joyous melodies, can-do spirit and classic plot, New York-based director Daniel Fish revived the song-and-dance spectacular in his home city in early 2019, earning eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Revival Of A Musical, for its stripped back, Country-western treatment of the original score and vivid, darker depiction of the Wild West reflected in its naturalistic staging and style.
