I am headed to New York today. I will be in meetings tomorrow for JERSEY BOYS! We look forward to these meetings as the producers so love the Chicago Company and always want to do whatever they can to make JERSEY BOYS the success that it is in Chicago. And then later in the week, we are having meetings at the New York Nederlander offices to plan for future shows. We will be meeting with many of the producers of the upcoming shows and then also looking at what shows are coming up for us in the future. Perhaps out of my meetings this week , I will have some interesting news to report in next week’s blog post.

I will be seeing shows while in New York – two Tony Award winners – IN THE HEIGHTS and THE 39 STEPS. Not to worry I will be back in time for the opening of CHICAGO! Love that show, after all it is our namesake musical.

Okay, here is a treat: Tell us what Chicago suburb is named in one of the songs in CHICAGO, and you could win my two seats to our opening night on Thursday, February 26 @ 7:30 pm. You have to answer (correctly!) by Thursday, February 19. Then we’ll select the winner (yeah, random number generator).

See you in the theatre!

EDIT: To answer the question, just leave it in the comments. Comments are not published right away, so be patient!


SECOND EDIT: WINNER IS EDUARDO MANIERO! Congrats! Someone will be emailing you with info on how to pick up your tickets. Enjoy!

  15. To answer your question about the Chicago suburb named in one of the songs in CHICAGO:
    In the Cell Block Tango, Velma Kelly says:
    One two three four five, splits, spread eagles, flip flops, back flips, one right after the other. Well, this one night we were in Cicero.
    So, the answer is Cicero. Cicero is considered a Western Chicago suburb.
    Hope to see you opening night!
