Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20’s, “Chicago” tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County jail.
Devilish and delightful, Chicago is an indisputable Broadway landmark. With one great showstopper after the next, the now-classic score keeps the story moving at gunshot pace.
The Bishop production of “Chicago” opens on Thursday, July 24, and runs through Sunday, July 27. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m., while the closing performance on Sunday begins at 2 p.m.
The Bishop Center cast includes Libby Carrico as Velma, Julyane Fleury as Roxie, Adam Cooper as Billy, Michael Fagerstedt playing Amos, Keola Holt as Mama Matron and Cathryn Davis as Mary Sunshine. The ensemble includes Michael Amendola, Spencer Brooks, Sarah Dier, Justin Hamerly, Stephanie Hornback, Ambi Howell, Rebecca Meacham, Tiffany Oestreich and Jerrod Phelps.
