BROADWAY IN CHICAGO ANNOUNCES
DIGITAL LOTTERY AND RUSH TICKET POLICY FOR
BROADWAY IN CHICAGO’S
CADILLAC PALACE THEATRE
MAY 7-12, 2019
I'll be out for the press opening May 7th, with my 18 year old son, who was in Lane Tech's winter high school production of CHICAGO. My 15 year old daughter was also cast as a featured dancer in CHICAGO at her high school, Taft, this spring. She turned it down to do a paid show with Voice of the City/After School Matters instead, but assisted with choreography and stunting. We're looking forward to catching the latest Broadway tour.
Broadway In Chicago is delighted to announce there will be a digital lottery and rush tickets for CHICAGO, which will play for a limited one-week engagement at Broadway In Chicago’s Cadillac Palace Theatre (151 W. Randolph) from May 7-12, 2019.
The digital lottery will begin May 6 at 9AM, and 26 tickets will be sold for every performance at $25 each. The lottery will happen online only the day before each performance. In addition, a limited number of day-of-show rush tickets will be offered for each performance at $49 each. These will be available at all performances of the run for purchase in-person at the Cadillac Palace Theatre box office beginning when the box office opens daily. Seat locations vary per performance for the digital lottery and day-of show tickets.

CHICAGO, the Tony Award®-winning, record-breaking hit musical, welcomes NFL Legend and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George to the role of “Billy Flynn.”
Eddie George joins the tour of CHICAGO following a successful limited engagement in the same role at the Ambassador Theatre on Broadway in 2016. Prior to taking the stage in CHICAGO, Eddie appeared in such works as Matthew Lopez’s The Whipping Man (Nashville Repertory Theatre), Suzan-Lori Parks’ Topdog/Underdog (Amun Ra Theatre) and in the title roles of both Othello and Julius Caesar at the Nashville Shakespeare Festival.
CHICAGO is the #1 Longest Running American Musical and the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award® for Best Musical Cast Recording.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
The national tour is directed by David Hyslop and choreographed by David Bushman. Walter Bobbie is the director of the original New York Production and Ann Reinking was the original choreographer in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer. The production also features orchestrations by Ralph Burns, supervising music direction by Rob Fisher.
CHICAGO is a production not to be missed. And all the reviewers agree. Time Magazine calls it “A Triumph,” Newsweek raves “Smashing” and Entertainment Weekly sums it up by calling CHICAGO “Broadway’s Most Electrifying Show.”
