Come experience Throckmorton Youth Performers production of CHICAGO, Broadway’s razzle-dazzle smash! This triumphant hit musical is a universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids. With one show stopping song after another and astonishing dance numbers, Chicago is sure to impress.
