Right from the beginning you know that it's a story of murder. It's a story of greed. It's a story of corruption, violence, adultery and more.
And it's all set to song and dance.
It's "Chicago," the award-winning musical sensation that's captivated audiences on both the Broadway stage and the big screen, and it's coming to the Gallo Center for the Arts for a three-day run next weekend.
"Chicago" takes a sassy and sensuous dance through the story of Roxie Hart, an ambitious chorus girl who kills her lover to further her career; Velma Kelly, a jailbird murderer who's desperate to keep her name in the press; and the slick lawyer Billy Flynn who can keep them both off death row — and turn them into stars.
The musical won six 1997 Tony Awards, including best musical revival. The Gallo Center production will play four shows Aug. 29-Sept 1.
