This Tony award winning Best Musical dances its way into Roustabout’s Apprentice Theater season. Set in the roaring ‘20s Chicago, thrill to the story of two danger-loving flappers – the “Merry Murderesses” of Chicago—vying for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of everyone’s favorite “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal.
Join us for this jazz-infused comic take on America’s great exports—musicals and greed. Inspired by Fosse’s award-winning choreography and with a bracing wit like the slap of a flapper’s heel, you will thrill to the sound and beat of this glorious American Musical classic.
Note: The Apprentice program is performing the newly licensed “High School Edition”, adapted by the original creators to keep the tone and spirit of the show while also making it appropriate for teenage audiences.
