Tacoma Musical Playhouse Presents CHICAGO, Now thru 10/21
Tacoma Musical Playhouse is thrilled to open our 19th season of award-winning musical theater with the long-awaited, much-anticipated TMP production of Chicago!
The award-winning Kander & Ebb musical will finally be presented as only TMP can! In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart (played alternately by TMP’s Kristin Burch & Lauren Nance) murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband 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 murderess, Velma Kelly (Candi Hall), join 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.
Chicago will play at TMP for 15 performances from tonight, September 28 - October 21, 2012: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm, and Saturday Matinees at 2 pm on October 6th, 13th and 20th.
