The spectacular long-running revival of the 1975 John Kander/Fred Ebb musical with much of the original exciting Bob Fosse choreography. Winner of 6 Tony Awards as well as an Academy Award winning motion picture....and on it goes......
Velma Kelly--a vaudevillian shot the other half of her sister act. Velma tells about Roxie's cold-blooded murder of nightclub regular Fred Casely and how Roxie convinces her husband Amos that the victim was a burglar, and so he cheerfully takes the rap for his wife. The long running show spawned the wonderful film, but seeing it LIVE ON STAGE is best of all.
