Chicago At San Jose Stage Company
FEBRUARY 5 – MARCH 15, 2020
by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
Script adaptation by David Thompson
Directed by Randall King
In roaring twenties Chicago, Roxie Hart (played by Adams) lands on murders row along with famed nightclub star Velma Kelly. Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn, is set to defend them and soon turns their stories into a media circus filled with flare to gain the public’s sympathy. As a timely satire on American justice and sensationalized journalism, Chicago relies on “fake news” to reconstruct public reality. This sharp-edged musical mixes the immortal style of Bob Fosse with infamous songs like “The Cell Block Tango,” “Mr. Cellophane,” & “All That Jazz” into a powder keg of a show.
