Enter a world of paparazzi, crooked lawyers, criminals, and all that Jazz! Based on a 1926 play about Prohibition-era Chicago, the story follows the trial of Roxie Hart, accused of the murder of her lover. Working the press to avoid the death sentence, Roxie comes into competition with Velma Kelly, accused of killing her husband and sister. Told through song and dance styled after the burlesques houses of the 1920s, this is one of Bob Fosse’s greatest collaborations with John Kander and Fred Ebb. This pre-professional presentation is produced by Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance, with support from the Performing Arts Center.
