Reserve your seats now for this beloved jazz-age spectacle on corruption, sensationalism, and the birth of the "celebrity criminal." As the second longest running show in the history of Broadway, you won't want to miss this audience favorite in the Ballantyne Auditorium. Chicago is just the vehicle to showcase the myriad talents of Kirkwood Community College's artistic team.
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, 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 "Merry Murderess," Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining 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.
