Chicago – Fulton Theatre | January 22 through February 7
A swinging vaudevillian night club scene, flappers, shysters, notoriety seekers, and murderesses. Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart want it all… their independence, celebrity, vengeance, and to use the corrupt justice system to win their freedom. All that glitters is not gold and today’s headlines are quickly replaced with the next scandal, but Velma and Roxie will stop at nothing to “Razzle Dazzle” in the spotlight. With a tantalizing score; “Cell Block Tango,” “When You’re Good to Mama,” “Mr. Cellophane” and more, Chicago promises to be “All That Jazz.”
Inlaws, Outlaws and Other Family Matters- Rainbow Comedy Playhouse | January 29 through March 9
Join us for a cheerful look at the thing that binds us and makes us crazy at the same time- family!
Disenchanted- Prima Theatre | February 1, 2, 8, 9, 22, 23
The original storybook heroines are here to set the record straight. These royal renegades toss of their tiaras to bring you this hilariously subversive, not-for-kids musical. What you think about princesses will never be the same. Replacing sugary duets, forest animals, and animated teapots are songs that expose the juicy details of each princess’ life post-happily ever after.
Lucky Stiff- Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre | February 14- March 16
A hapless shoe salesman named Harry discovers that his dearly departed uncle, a New Jersey casino owner left him $6 million. But there’s a catch; he must first take his uncle’s body to Monte Carlo for that last trip of a lifetime. Why should a stiff be denied the joys of skydiving, snorkeling, and around the clock roulette? If Harry fails to fulfill his uncle’s posthumous instructions exactly, the bucks go to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn. This show is recommended for audiences 12 and up.
