Baby, What a Big Surprise: Chicago to Hit Broadway with Colour My World

By New York City
It has just been announced that the famous rock-and-roll band Chicago has signed with theatrical producers Richard and Janina Akins to develop Colour My World, a musical based on the group's hit songs. Plans are for the show to open on Broadway in the spring of 2005. Jeff Arch, who wrote the screenplay for Sleepless in Seattle and Broadway musical director Doug Katsaros are attached to the project.

According to Richard Akins, "Chicago represents an important part of musical history for millions of fans, their music itself is timeless, and the lyrics are full of the kind of imagery that lends itself to a classic Broadway show. It's a perfect fit, and that's why some of Broadway's best have come onboard already."
