Gloriana Musical Theatre is pleased to announce its production of CHICAGO! Directed by David Strock.
One of Broadway’s longest-running American musicals, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Chicago follows Roxie Hart (played by Blare Elliott), a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly (played by Alexis Eich). When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn (played by Jeffrey Grant), tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight and the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy, sexy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as unforgettable as any trial of the century.
