GraceArts LIVE presents Chicago! Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine.
Shows at the GraceArts LIVE Performing Arts Center (2146 N McCulloch Blvd) are set for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and for 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Set in 1920’s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly.
When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight– though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy music and phenomenal dancing, Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century
