Chicago

 

When you “give ‘em the old razzle dazzle,” it often means someone is getting the better of another. No wonder the phrase has been popular among bickering politicians lately. When a musical theater major hears it, she reaches for a bowler hat and breaks out in one of the most audacious songs from Chicago, that scintillating Kander and Ebb dark comedy musical that’s been on the road to everywhere and back since its wildly popular revival opened on Broadway in 1996. Tulsa and Oklahoma City are about to take a trip back to scandalous Old Chicago, home to vixen jailbirds Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart, each on trial for murdering their no-good lovers. Chicago stars John O’Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) as Billy Flynn and plays the Oklahoma City Civic Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City, Jan. 14-19. The show moves on to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 101 E. Third St., Tulsa, Jan. 21-26. Tickets are $25-$80, available at www.celebrityattractions.com.
