Some theater never gets old — especially when bawdy singing, sultry dancing and a bygone era are in the mix. Such is Chicago, marking it’s 40th anniversary. The play’s setting takes it back 50 years further to prohibition-era Chicago, a time when jazz was swinging and, according to the press, women were mostly getting away with murder. It is two women, one acquitted, one convicted, whom Chicago follows as it sings and dances a path through high society, swanky clubs and the Cook County Jail, in search of the truth and some sense of validation.
Jazz it up in Chicago, 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 27, at Gammage Auditorium, 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe. Tickets are $45 to $170. Visit asugammage.com or call 480-965-3434.
