Just yesterday, Broadway was introduced to the latest musical from John Kander and the late Fred Ebb- one of the greatest songwriting duos in the history of musical theatre. While the current Broadway revival of Chicago is now the longest running American musical in history, the London revival of Cabaret is one of the hottest tickets on the West End, and now, New York, New York is in previews at the St. James Theatre.

Their other Broadway musicals include Flora, the Red Menace (1965), Zorba (1968), 70, Girls, 70 (1971), The Act (1978), Woman of the Year (1981), The Rink (1984), And the World Goes 'Round (1991), Kiss of the Spiderwoman (1992), Steel Pier (1997), Curtains (2006), The Scottsboro Boys (2010) and The Visit (2015.) Their work in the theater has been recognized by three Tony Awards (Cabaret, Woman of the Year, and Kiss of the Spiderwoman.) The film adaptations of Chicago and Cabaret are two of the most successful musicals on film of all time. Chicago: 6 Academy Awards including "Best Picture" Cabaret: 8 Academy Awards including "Best Original Song Score."
