‘CHICAGO’ AT THE CITY THE­ATRE

Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - THE PLANNER -

8 p.m. Thurs­day-Satur­day, 3 p.m. Sunday through Sept. 10. $25-$45. 3823 Air­port Blvd. Suite D. 512-524-2870, citythe­atreaustin.org

The City The­atre is top­ping off its sum­mer sea­son with the most raz­zle-daz­zling of stage mu­si­cal greats, now the long­est-run­ning Amer­i­can mu­si­cal in Broad­way his­tory. “Chicago” is set amid the flashy deca­dence of the 1920s, when housewife and night­club dancer Roxie Hart mur­ders her on-the-side lover and trans­forms her ma­li­cious crime into sen­sa­tional head­lines rem­i­nis­cent of to­day’s tabloids. Expect a jazzy score of “Cell Block Tango,” “Mr. Cel­lo­phane” and more.
