Chicago, now playing at the Ambassador Theatre, celebrated becoming the fourth longest-running Broadway show with a special cake and reception following the Friday, August 26 performance.

The show was due to reach its landmark performance with the matinee performance on Saturday, August 27. However, due to Hurricane Irene, that performance was canceled, and the musical will officially become the fourth longest running show after the Monday, August 29 performance.

The production opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on November 14, 1996. It subsequently transferred to Broadway's Shubert Theatre on February 11, 1997 and the production began performances at the Amabassador on January 29, 2003.

Bebe Neuwirth, who won a Tony for her starring role in the original company of the Broadway revival, joined current stars Charlotte d'Amboise (Roxie Hart), Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Velma Kelly), Christopher Sieber (Billy Flynn), Chris Sullivan (Amos Hart), and Carol Woods (Matron "Mama" Morton) for the celebration.

Chicago has been directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking. The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), and Scott Lehrer (sound design).
