Chicago-The Musical, one of the longest-running shows on Broadway comes to New Bern, NC. Directed by Derek Jordan and produced by Nancy Hitchcock, this play tells the story of Roxie Hart (Kelli Billingsly) and Velma Kelly (Amanda Pumphrey), two killer-dillers on their way to fame by any means possible. All publicity is good publicity, right? When Roxie shoots her lover, Fred (Keagan Kermode), she employs an unscrupulous lawyer, Billy Flynn (Jeff Bashford), to get herself off the hook. But will she be thwarted by double-murderess and headliner Velma Kelly? Or will this gruesome twosome become a sister act??
