* Pay What You Will Preview

CHICAGO has everything that makes a musical great; murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation adultery, treachery, and all that jazz; and one show-stopping-song after another.

No wonder CHICAGO has been honored with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations.   It's also no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa.  And now you can see it in Marin!

Chicago History

Chicago is a Kander and Ebb musical set in prohibition era Chicago. The music is by John Kander with lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice, and the concept of the "celebrity criminal." The musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she had reported on.

Stop The Presses! CHICAGO is coming to MST!

Marin Summer Theater is thrilled to annouce a change to its 2010 season!  MST will be be presenting CHICAGO instead of Gypsy on July 9, 10, and 11, as previously announced. 

According to Artistic Director Patrick Nims, MST was contacted by Samuel French (the licensing agent for CHICAGO) in late January 2010 with news that an application submitted in mid-2009 had been approved.  "We had applied for the rights to present CHICAGO three times over the past year and a half and had given up hope." said Nims.  "I love Gypsy, and still think it is one of the greatest musicals written, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to mount CHICAGO". 

Marin Summer Theater (MST) is an evening program for students of performing arts between the ages of 13 and 23 and includes actors, singers, dancers, musicians, directors, designers, technicians, and crew.  Applications for the MST 2010 Season are now available.
