One Lawyer, Two women, three corpses and a band of merry murderesses. Come bear witness to the efficacy of the celebrity defence and the acts two women are willing to commit in order to prove their innocence .
Chicago focuses on Roxy Heart and Velma Kelly as they strive to become ‘celebrity criminals!’ Helped along by Billy Flynn, Matron ‘Mama’ Morton and the other murderesses, Roxy and Velma learn that life behind bars isn’t so easy with greed, corruption, violence, exploitation and treachery being just some of the lessons learned along the way in this classical musical.
However, the first lesson one learns in the big house is that secrecy is paramount, so if you want the low down on the juice joint where this little party will take place you’ll have to book a ticket. All that can be said is it’ll be to the west of town near to public transport. Then a week before your booked performance you will receive an email with the location and password needed for you to obtain entry to the show.
