Bob Fosse's satirical musical 'Chicago' will be presented by the Princeton University Players at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, March 28-30, and Thursday through Saturday, April 4-6, in the Frist Film/Performance Center. An additional matinee performance will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6.
"Chicago" is based on a 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins. It premiered on Broadway in 1975 and was revived in 1996, receiving rave reviews and seven Tony Awards. A story of "murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery," Chicago follows Roxie Hart's rise into the public eye as she is arrested and tried for the murder of her lover, Fred Casely.
The musical is a senior thesis production for director and choreographer Amanda Brandes '02. It features the singing and dancing talents of members of Sympoh, BodyHype, diSiac and several a cappella groups. The production also features the final undergraduate performances of Princeton theater veterans Devin Sidell '02, Elizabeth Greenberg '02 and Rakesh Satyal '02.
