In the early 1920s, Chicago’s press and public became riveted by the subject of homicides committed by women. Several high-profile cases arose, which generally involved women killing their lovers or husbands. ... Read More

“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.

… and all that Fosse!
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. Alina comes to “CHICAGO” with an extensive dance and choreography resume. If you have seen a Northumberland Players musical, chances are you have seen her brilliant choreography ... Read More
