The Tony Award-winning musical CHICAGO has made its way to Broadway in Detroit! Bethany and I were there for opening night at the Fisher Theatre. Showbiz veteran John O’Hurley starred as Billy Flynn, and I was pleasantly surprised at his vocal ability and command on the stage.
Set in a 1920s women’s correctional facility, CHICAGO is a story of scandal, suspense and fame…We follow Roxie Hart (Tracy Shayne) from the murder of her lover to the highly publicized trial!
My favorite part of any musical is, of course, the ability to watch a story unfold through each show-stopping performance. This edgy musical did not lack in that department. I sang along to “Razzle Dazzle,” “Mister Cellophane,” “Class,” and, of course, my favorite…”ALL THAT JAZZ” (performed by the sultry Terra C. Mcleod as Velma)
Whether you’ve seen the Oscar-winning film or you’re experiencing the entire show for the first time, you will love CHICAGO! Catch it at the Fisher Theatre – home of Broadway in Detroit - until May 22nd!
You know you love me, XOXO
