Review: Corruption, greed, ‘Razzle Dazzle’ and ‘All That Jazz’ on display in entertaining ‘Chicago: the Musical’

There might be no more perfect American musical than “Chicago.” It’s cynical, bawdy and bitingly funny. It takes aim at corruption and greed and the belief that there is no such thing as bad publicity. It has the audacity to take murderers and have them not only get away with it, but also turn their notoriety into success. → Read More

So that’s very much a… → Read More
