Chicago, the musical, is a recreation of the 1926 play of the same name written by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins, who sat in on the trials of the two women the musical’s main characters, Velma and Roxie, are based on. Velma, a nightclub star, and Roxie, a chorus girl, find themselves locked up after committing murderous deeds. Watch this satire on celebrity criminals – a villainous, yet delightful story – unravel on stage through music and dance as Velma, with the help of lawyer Billy Flynn, turns her jail stint into a media frenzy. And don’t worry: Roxie has some surprises in store for the audience, too. Theatre Tulsa brings the music and lyrics of Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center stage Feb. 13 through Feb. 22. You won’t want to miss this world-renowned musical filled with sass, wit, dance and music. Musical numbers including “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango” and “Razzle Dazzle” are sure to stir up some trouble and excitement on stage. Enjoy Blythe Nelson as Roxie, Sara Wilemon as Velma, Scott Gaffen as Billy Flynn, David Blackely as Amos, Sam Briggs as reporter Mary Sunshine and Mettece Mason as Mama Morton.
