Stay tuned for my review next week!
“Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle” captures the essence of Chicago, one of the most popular and longest-running Broadway musicals of all time. John O’Hurley (Mr. Peterman from Seinfeld) stars as slick lawyer Billy Flynn in this entertaining blend of glitz and sin. Chicago portrays the captivating tale of Roxy Hart, a housewife and dancer with dreams of hitting it big who gets stuck in the “big house” instead. Roxy murders her lover and then, in cahoots with Flynn, weaves a sordid web of deceit that dupes the public, her death row cellmate (who also once chased fame) and even the jail’s hard-nosed warden. Chicago has a little bit of everything: great dancing, catchy songs and snappy dialogue that sounds like it’s been written in jazz. Let’s not forget healthy doses of murder, jealousy, greed and laughs that continue to keep audiences around the country enthralled. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy.
