THERE IS 20 SECONDS OF SILENCE IN THE OPENING AND THEN IT'S ALL GOOD

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle, razzle dazlle 'em.  Join your favourite Transatlantic podcasting duo - Ian & Liam - to review our first Academy Award Winner for Best Picture in Chicago.  We're joined once again by our permaguests, Ellie & Georgia to discuss Rob Marshall's theatrical directorial debut and consider how he spun a meeting with Miramax over a different musical to a 6-Time Academy Award winner.  It's a jazz-filled 10th episode as we discuss:

  • Original casting desires for Roxy, Billy, and Mamma
  • Who Harvey Weinstein wanted to play Kitty
  • How Catherine Zeta-Jones auditioned for the role she would win her Oscar for
  • Who from the 1975 and 1996 stage shows make their way into the film
  • If Chicago is the Best Film Ever?
