The Big Deal: Chicago at AT&T PAC

by Sarah Hennigan 8 Aug 2012 7:39 AM

The Tony Award-winning musical Chicago is coming to the AT&T Performing Arts Center this month. The Winspear will host the show Aug. 14-26.

Murder. Greed. Corruption. Violence. Exploitation. Adultery. Treachery. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is the winner of six  Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. 

Five lucky Big Deal winners will receive a pair of tickets to see Chicago on Opening Night, Aug. 14.
