May. 29 - Jun. 28, 2015

This multiple-award-winning musical tells a universal tale of fame, fortune, murder, and all that jazz with one show-stopping number after another. Set in prohibition-era Chicago and based on actual crimes from the era, Chicago is a satire packed with glamour and glitz and a host of unforgettable characters including murdering chorus girl, Roxie Hart who attempts to make the most of her sudden fame, vaudevillian Velma Kelly and the Merry Murderesses of Murders' Row trying to keep the limelight focused on themselves, and their sweet-talking, fast-dealing lawyer, Billy Flynn. The performance rights for Chicago haven’t been available to regional theaters for over a decade, so Austin Playhouse is thrilled to be one of the first theaters to produce this show!

Chicago stars Sara Burke as Roxie Hart, Rachel James as Velma Kelley, Huck Huckaby as Billy Flynn, Jacqui Cross as Mama Morton, and Scott Shipman as Amos, with Isaac Arrieta, Kyle Coughlin, Claire Grasso, Kelley Elizabeth Henry, Leslie Hethcox, Stephen Jack, Molly Karrasch, Sarah Reynolds, Jerreme Rodriguez, Brandon Rogers, Erin Ryan, Anna Vanston, and Rocker Verastique.

The play is directed by Michael McKelvey, with musical direction by Lyn Koenning, choreography by Danny Herman and Rocker Verastique, set design by Desiderio Roybal, lighting design by Don Day, costume design by Buffy Manners, and sound design by Joel Mercado-See.
