Mercy High School presents it's 2017 spring musical Chicago on Friday, March 31st, Saturday, April 1st and the following weekend Friday, April 7th and Saturday, April 8th at 7pm in Mercy High School's Theater.
This lively romp features music and lyrics by the famous Kander & Ebb team and a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, the renowned choreographer/director. This musical, based on the 1926 play Chicago by Maurine Dallas Watkins, tells the stories of notorious women killers. The attention of the press made many of them celebrities of their day, just as excessive press coverage made icons of many of the 1920s Mob figures. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie Hart and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly vie for the spotlight and the headlines as they search for the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal.
