Christopher is a 15-year old boy who has an extraordinary brain, and although he is exceptional at mathematics, he is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his entire world. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play, this beautiful, funny and intense story about adolescence and fractured families resonates with meaning about the wonders of life and is a dazzlingly inventive experience.

A sharp-edged satire that was ahead of its time, CHICAGO has become a musical theatre classic in a category all its own. Set in the roaring twenties, the story follows chorus cutie, Roxie Hart, as she tries to get acquitted for the murder by pinning it on her gullible husband. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “merry murderess” named Velma Kelly both compete for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in their search for the American dream: fame, fortune, and celebrity! But they’ll both need Billy Flynn, Chicago’s slickest lawyer, to give ‘em the old “Razzle Dazzle” if they want their freedom back! This award-winning production includes unforgettable songs like “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango,” and “Nowadays,” and with a dazzling score by Kander and Ebb and legendary choreography by Bob Fosse, it would be a crime to miss CHICAGO!
