Opening tonight! Doors open at 6:30pm
Set in the legendary city during the roaring jazz hot 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma is serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two have been having an affair. Driven chorus girl Roxie has been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve.
The show will open on Thursday, December 6 at 7pm, and will run until Saturday evening.
