Chicago Makes History

That's right theatre fans. One of Broadway's longest running shows is about to reach a milestone. Chicago which will celebrate it's 5,960 performance today is now the fifth longest running show in Broadway history. Who would have though that a show that was overshadowed by A Chorus Line in the late 1970's would become one of Broadway's biggest success stories? I know I sure didn't. Believe it or not but Chicago is only 178 performances away from surpassing A Chorus Line to rank number four on Broadway's all time list. That's less than six months away for those of you keeping track. Now while I enjoyed the show I never thought I would still be talking about it all these years later.Yet here we are some fourteen years later and Chicago is still going strong with no end in sight. Now do I think it will ever surpass Phantom as Broadway's longest running show of all time? Stranger things have happened. Only 3,673 performances to go. Until next time theatre fans.
