There'll be nothing but laughter and applause when 23 students bring the musical "Chicago" to the university stage for the first time. The show opens March 5 for a two week run.
The rousing "Chicago," bursting with show-stopping song and dance numbers — including "All that Jazz" — will make you realize why the arts are essential in the university setting.
Don't miss Catherine Williamson, of San Leandro, as fame hungry Roxie Hart, and Caitlin O'Leary, Pleasanton, as tabloid darling Velma Kelly. Martinez resident Richard Dyrada is lawyer Billy Flynn, Oakland resident Bradford L. Barnes plays the MC and bandleader; Wesley Sonido, Alameda, and Adam Rabinovitz, San Francisco, share the role of Amos Hart; and Luc Anthony Luzzo, Dixon, is assistant district attorney Martin Harrison.
