Photo Flash: Hotcha! CHICAGO Rocks the Hollywood Bowl
Broadway World 28 July 2013
The Hollywood Bowl's production of the third longest running musical in Broadway history - CHICAGO - stars Samantha Barks as Velma, Drew Carey as Amos, Lucy Lawless as Mama Morton, Stephen Moyer as Billy Flynn, and AshLee Simpson as Roxie Hart. The Production opened Friday night, July 26, and runs through tonight, July 28. The show is directed by Brooke Shields with Musical Direction by Rob Fisher. Check out photos of the cast in action below!
On the extreme other hand, Saturday night I went to see Chicago, the 1975 Kander and Ebb musical, which plays for a handful of performances this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl. The show follows two 1920s vaudeville showgirls who team up after meeting in prison for murder. But there are no orange jumpsuits here. This prison is punctuated by shimmering dresses, punchy songs, an empathetic and bribable warden, and one sexy, slimy lawyer....
Lucy Lawless, yep, Xena herself, adds another powerful woman to her résumé in the role of Mama Morton. She just looks like she’s having a blast onstage and belts out “When You’re Good to Mama” with pizzazz.
