Chicago The Musical
Jones Hall for
the Performing Arts
Friday 6/7/2019 8:00PM
The musical Chicago is based on a play of the same name by reporter and playwright Maurine Dallas Watkins, who was assigned to cover the 1924 trials of accused murderers Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner for the Chicago Tribune. In the early 1920s, Chicago's press and public became riveted by the subject of homicides committed by women. Several high-profile cases arose, which generally involved women killing their lovers or husbands. These cases were tried against a backdrop of changing views of women in the Jazz age, and a long string of acquittals by Cook County juries of women murderesses (jurors at the time were all men, and convicted murderers generally faced death by hanging).
With original songs that have become Broadway standards, the world's longest musical revival is currently high-kicking its way across North American on tour, so break out the fishnet gloves, tap shoes and practise your jazz hands!

Humphreys School of Musical Theatre returns to Miller Outdoor Theatre with The Addams Family, a creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky musical comedy that will delight the whole family! Based on the iconic characters created by legendary cartoonist Charles Addams, this ghoulishly fun Broadway musical follows a now grown-up Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, who has fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
