Featuring Camille Barigar as Roxie Hart, Johanna Stagge as Velma Kelly, Dusty Blackburn as Billy Flynn, Lori Henson as Matron Mama Morton, and Blake Burton as Amos. Directed by Shane Brown, Choreography by Keesha Olander, Musical Direction by Lori Henson, and Costume Design by James Haycock. Chicago was nominated in 1975 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score and won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse. Chicago is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb, based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, and script adaptation by David Thompson.
