Murder, drama, action, song and dance: The musical Chicago
has it all. Set in the Roaring '20s, the play follows a pair of lady killers (as in killers who are women) — Vaudeville performer Velma Kelly who found her husband and sister in bed together and chorus girl Roxie Heart who took out her lover. Despite being locked up in the Cook County Jail, the two still dream of fame and fortune while working the corrupt system to their advantage. Asheville Community Theatre's production of Chicago
runs Friday, Feb. 17 through Sunday, March 11. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2:30 p.m. with a special Thursday, March 1 show to benefit Eblen Charities. $22, $19 and $12. http://www.ashevilletheatre.org.
