Minnetonka Theatre Presents

Chicago

Directed by Trent Boyum

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse

Music by John Kander

Lyrics by Fred Ebb

The longest-running American musical in Broadway history, it's the Jazz Age, the roaring twenties in Chicago, and chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie.

 

Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess," Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune, and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse, and includes songs like "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango," and "Mr. Cellophane," among others.

Recommended for age 13 and up.

Show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
