Musical Theatre Southwest is staging one of Broadway’s most popular shows.
“Chicago” is a musical satire on corruption in the criminal justice system and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.” The show is based on real accounts of criminal activity reported on by Maurine Watkins, with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Ebb and Bob Fosse.
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.
