Weathervane Theatre Presents: Chicago, The Musical


Book by Fred Ebb & Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb

This sinister and sexy musical is a must-see for any Fosse fan or fan of celebrity crime. Set in Jazz Age Chicago, the story follows the trial and deeds of two murderesses — Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly — who are locked in the Cook County Jail. Based on the true crime coverage of Chicago’s surge of female killers, Chicago takes on the system and wins. Laced with great numbers such as “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango,” and “Razzle Dazzle,” and iconic choreography, Chicago is a fast-paced, fun and raunchy ride in the theater. Don’t miss it!

“Chicago still glitters hypnotically!  It remains the best adult entertainment in town and still bubbles with the joy of performing!”
– Ben Brantley, the New York Times (2007)
