The O'Reilly Theatre ends its first season with Jazz Hands Productions' performance of the well known musical Chicago. Set in Jazz-age Chicago, this musical is a story of love, murder, fame and, of course, music as two nightclub sensations, Velma and Roxie, battle it out in a bid for fame from behind bars.
