Chicago dazzles with cool jazz, cold crimes, and dry humor performed by a talented cast. Ambitious beauty Roxie Hart attempts to spin murder into fame and a plate into shattered porcelain in this satirical tale on the seductive powers of corruption. The music and lyrics, constructed by famed tunesmiths John Kander and Fred Ebb, rollick across stage with glitzy costumes and sultry dances inspired by original Chicago choreographer Bob Fosse. Brassy voices clamor in replication of courtroom sophistry and a sensationalistic media storm as a bevy of murderous women strut their stuff in instantly recognizable songs such as "All That Jazz" and the cheekily sinister "Cell Block Tango."
The tale was ripped from the headlines at the time the original play was written at the height of Prohibition, and it's been in constant performance since its Broadway adaptation in 1975. Now, Half & Half Productions celebrates the musical's upcoming 40th anniversary with a saucy new staging inside an intimate jazz club.
Half & Half Productions
M. Scott Tatum and Julianna E. Wright aren't interested in complacency. Instead, the founders of Half & Half Productions encourage others to question, examine, and challenge their identities through artistic expression. That same quest for personal understanding informs all of their dynamic productions, from the scandalous, satirical Chicago to the genre-bending Passing Strange.
