If you considered yourself a well-versed musical-goer, the show Chicago needs no introduction! For those who are uninitiated, prepare to have the time of your life at a non-stop entertainment riot that you can bop your head along to the entire time! If you were hoping for a white-knuckle rollercoaster ride of a show, you're in luck, because seats should still be available to see Chicago the musical in its namesake of a town! Follow the story of Velma and Roxie Hart as they are respectively sent to prison for crimes of passion, with Velma having murdered her ex-husband and Roxie being involved in a plot to kill her former lover and blame it on her current husband. Unfortunately, Roxie's husband begins to put the pieces together and the court throws the book at her, leaving Roxie in prison with Velma and planning her next big move out. You'll soon find in this show that crime just isn't what it used to be! Watch as these two masterminds string along prisoners and the media as they work tirelessly to get themselves out -- and of course, back in -- to trouble!

His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950’s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and a remake of Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.” He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including: “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?” and his signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” which garnered him the first two of his 19 Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and 10’s. He introduced a multitude of songs into the great American Songbook that have since become pop music classics.
