Here’s a rare look at the original production of Chicago.
This first set of clips is from an out-of-town tryout, shot by Fred Ebb himself (as legend has it), so we get to see some stuff that never made it into the final version of the show!
This second clip features Gwen Verdon and Chita Rivera doing “Nowadays/Hot Honey Rag” on The Howard Cossell Show, also in 1975.
This is a real treat to see… but can you imagine what we’d have on record today if YouTube had existed in 1975?!!
