Based on 1924 trials of murderesses Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner, Chicago is a tale of the women who will stop at nothing for fame, fortune, and all that jazz. With spirited, show-stopping songs and scintillating, knockout dance numbers it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Directed by Clinton Johnston, Chicago features Danni Guy as Roxie Hart and Justine Mackey as Velma Kelly, the publicity seeking murderesses. Alejandro Rosa is Billy Flynn, slick celebrity lawyer and Olivia Grace is Mamma Morton, the seductively corrupt prison matron. Also featuring Shane Sczepankowski as clueless husband Amos Hart, Zachary Swanson as the sob-sister reporter Mary Sunshine and Jesi Dunivan as the all-knowing Master of Ceremonies. Tiffany Waters, Emily Marks, Rebecca Bailey, Laura Wise, and Savhanna Jones are the scantily clad performers of the Cell Block Tango, joining Catherine Mahoney, Koren Grace, Bridget Burner, Matthew Cline-Taskey and Jake Duvall-Early as a host of characters in the company.
Chicago has been honored with 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards®, a Grammy® and standing ovations all over the world from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa and now for the first time in Staunton, VA.
