|Give 'em the old
|August 18 - September 10
|Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle in the Kander and Ebb smash hit musical which is sure
to deliver! Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of
fame and fortune, one show-stopping-song after another, and the best dancing you’
ve ever seen. It’s no wonder CHICAGO has been honored with countless awards and
thousands of standing ovations worldwide. Set amidst the flashy decadence of the
1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who
murders her on-the-side lover and transforms her malicious crime into sensational
headlines reminiscent of today’s tabloids. The edgy storyline is rocket-propelled by a
tart, jazzy score featuring such Broadway standards as When You’re Good to Mama,
Cell Block Tango, Mr. Cellophane and Razzle Dazzle.
Murder. Greed. Corruption. Treachery. And all that jazz!
With Emily Perzan, Alexandra Bates, Patrick Wheeler, Shelby Schisler

Chicago is directed by Matthew Shead, who directed CTC’s productions of Grease,
Little Shop of Horrors, and the award-winning Love! Valour! Compassion! Written by
the highly successful song writing team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, whose musical
hits include Cabaret, Chicago, Woman of the Year, and Kiss of the Spider Woman.
With a presence on Broadway for nearly 40 years, Kander and Ebb have one of the
longest collaborations in the history of the American musical theater. As well, Bob
Fosse is no stranger to the American musical, as a dancer, choreographer,
director, screenwriter, film director and actor. He won eight Tony Awards for
choreography and direction, more than anyone else.
