Pre-Show Activities (offered one hour before the show):
As we anxiously awaited for the show to start, we were able to have a little taste of the 20’s. Who doesn’t like live music? The Side Street Strutters Jazz Band, a themed jazz club right out of 1920s Chicago, was jazzing it up over at the “The Onyx Club” (located at the Fire Bird Cafe of Segerstrom Hall).
About the Musical:
CHICAGO takes us back to the roaring 1920s, with the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub star who murders her secret lover after he threatens to leave her. Trying to escape prison, Roxie has something up her sleeve. This will probably involve tricking the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into sensational headline news.
