"Chicago" at the Springfield Little Theatre
( Gerry Averett Photography )
Winner of six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award for Best Picture of the Year, Chicago is based on a play by Maurine Dallas Watkins. Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who murders her unfaithful lover but manages to avoid prison with the help of her razzle-dazzle lawyer. Roxie, along with another murderous chorus girl, uses the trial to propel herself to showbiz stardom. Chicago has everything that makes a musical great: universal tale of fame, fortune and "All That Jazz!"
