What's New In New York State!


"Chicago" at the Ray Evans Seneca Theater

Cattaraugus County , Chautauqua-Allegheny | Entertainment , Lifestyle

The Ray Evans Seneca Theater and the Cattaraugus County Living Arts Association's heats up this summer with "Chicago"!  The longest running American musical in Broadway history, the musical is based on a 1926 play about actual criminals and features the work of legends John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Bob Fosse.  Doors will open one hour before curtain for a special "Speakeasy" feel and surprise!  This musical is suggested for PG-13 audiences. 

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
