With a book by five-time Emmy Award nominee Linda Bloodworth Thomason, direction by Simon Phillips and songs by Motown legends Holland-Dozier-Holland, First Wives Club: The Musical is currently having it’s out-of-town premiere at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre (24 W Randolph Street) through March 29, 2015.

In First Wives Club, three former college friends reunite to find that they have more in common than their alma mater! Ditched by their respective husbands for younger women, they band together to settle scores with the men who did them wrong.  Featuring new songs and classic hits like "Reach Out…I'll Be There," "Stop in the Name of Love" and "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)," First Wives Club is a hilarious, inspiring, and empowering story about friendship at its strongest... and revenge at its sweetest.

First Wives Club is based on the hit 1996 Paramount feature film and the original best-selling novel by Olivia Goldsmith, and adapted from an earlier version of the musical by Rupert Holmes, with additional material by Simon Phillips.
