"Chicago", Festival Theatre, Stratford Festival, Stratford, ON

Gord and I headed to Stratford today to see Chicago.

In the Roaring Twenties, aspiring chorus girl Roxie Hart and fading vaudeville star Velma Kelly each face trial for murder. Both as cynical as they are sexy, the two women compete for the services of shady lawyer Billy Flynn, who promises to make them media celebrities and win them acquittals. With its killer score and all-new knock-’em-dead dance numbers, this deliciously lurid tale of adultery, murder and justice as showbiz packs some serious heat.

It is at the Festival Theatre in Stratford and is part of the Stratford Festival.

It's been a while since I've been to Stratford so I was looking forward to heading down for the day. And I wasn't disappointed ... Chicago was really good!  It was lively and fun and funny and the crowd loved it.  All the actors, singers and dancers did an excellent job!

The Festival has a bus that runs between Toronto and Stratford a couple times a day depending on the amount of plays going on and we took that.  It's about $30 down and back and it was nice to have someone else do the driving, especially coming back with the rain and wet snow.
