Tacoma Musical Playhouse opens its 19th season of award-winning musical theater with the long-awaited, much-anticipated production of Chicago!
The award-winning Kander & Ebb musical will finally be presented as only TMP can. In Roaring Twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart (played alternately by TMP’s Kristin Burch & Lauren Nance) murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband 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 murderess, Velma Kelly (Candi Hall), join 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.
TMP is hosting a free preview presentation, Behind the Curtain! at TMP on Sunday, September 23 at 7 pm where you can learn more about the show and the production.
