Photo Coverage: Stephen Baldwin Visits 'Chicago'

‚Äč

On Tuesday, January 8, film and TV-star Stephen Baldwin visited his former "Celebrity Apprentice" co-star Vincent Pastore, who currently starring as endearing yet nearly invisible husband Amos Hart in Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre.
 
Joining Pastore is Broadway's newest red-hot mama, two-time Emmy Award nominee Aida Turturro ("The Sopranos") in the celebrated role of Matron "Mama" Morton, the reigning cellblock diva of the hit musical Chicago.

Pastore and Turturro appear with Michelle DeJean as Roxie Hart, Jeff McCarthy as Billy Flynn through Sunday, January 13, 2008.

"Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously 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," explain press notes.

With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. Directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking, 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.
