The musical “CHICAGO” is based on a play of the same name by reporter and playwright Maurine Dallas Watkins, who was assigned to cover the 1924 trials of accused murderers Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner for the Chicago Tribune. In the early 1920s, Chicago’s press and public became riveted by the subject of homicides committed by women.

“CHICAGO” on The Nothing Exists Radio Hour
Two cast members from “CHICAGO” were recently interviewed on The Nothing Exists Radio Hour on Northumberland 89.7.

We recently sat down with the lovely and talented Alina Adjemian to discuss the evolution of dance during the roaring 1920’s, her challenges working on this very dance-focussed production, and all things Fosse.
