Thespians to Bring Chicago to Schwab Auditorium
Hold on to your fedoras, Penn State. This weekend, the Penn State Thespians will bring murder, intrigue, sex appeal, fishnet tights, and “All That Jazz” to Schwab Auditorium with Chicago. The six-time Tony and Academy Award winner opens tonight, October 24, at 7:30 p.m. Other performance dates are Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
This particular production of Chicago features impressive choreography, slinky black costumes, and a minimalist set that allows the cast to really shine. Randi Kaplan and Kelli Boyle star as Velma and Roxie respectively and their vocal performances are definitely not worth missing. The choreography is strongly influenced by the co-writer of the musical’s book, Bob Fosse. Picture lots of Charleston dance moves and jazz hands. Director Emma Gregory has created a production that really transports you to Chicago in the 1920s.
Friday night will feature a “Talk Back” after the show. During this event, audience members will be allowed to move to the front of the house and ask director Emma Gregory and the cast questions about the production, rehearsal process, or anything else that comes to mind. Tickets from both the Thursday and Friday night shows will be accepted for this event.
