The Tony award-winning Broadway musical, set in prohibition-era Chicago, is about two rival vaudevillian murderesses trying to capture the spotlight while behind bars. Directed by Lisel Forst with Allison Girvan as musical director, the local cast includes Sydney Black, Jeff Forst  and Hannah Jarvis-Lingard.

Tickets for Chicago are on sale now, $20 for students and $25 for adults and are available at the Capitol Theatre box office, online at capitoltheatre.bc.ca or by phone, 250-352-6363.
