A universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, Chicago—A Musical Vaudeville captivates audiences as unsavory characters sing sultry numbers on the streets of the Prohibition-era Windy City. Velma Kelly is a vivacious vaudevillian who also happens to be a cold-blooded killer. She competes for celebrity status and the attention of lawyer Billy Flynn against fellow murderess and performer Roxie Hart. Audiences witness jailhouse tangos, courthouse rumbles, and scene after scene of dancing, all while wondering when the chorus line of Sears Towers is going to show up.
Classic Chicago numbers include the percussive, saucy "Cell Block Tango," in which a septet of incarcerated sirens swaps murderous anecdotes, and the smoky, whole-company piece "All That Jazz." The fringed and fishnetted Broadway musical is so beloved that in 2002 it was turned into a film starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, and Renée Zellweger.
Broadway Theatricals' aim is to bring the scale and professionalism of the Great White Way to the Inland Empire community via hard-hitting musical numbers and incredibly elaborate production designs. The group estimates that its musicals and straight plays draw a consistent crowd of about 600, only a few of whom are ghosts that live in the theater’s basement. More that 100 actors—a mix of pros and newcomers—have passed through the sets of the company’s trademark crowd-pleasers since the company's 2011 inception.
