“a hardworking and talented company brings a little bit of the show’s sophisticated razzle dazzle to its storefront theater in Shoppingtown Mall…..Blessed by an overabundance of talented performers,” – Len Fonte,

Chicago at the Central New York Playhouse definitely delivers some killer performances. The production is sexy, seductive, and wholly entertaining. It turns up the heat even more for summer so don’t miss your chance to go and support this very devoted community theatre in the Syracuse area.”  – Natasha Ashley,

“With 26 performers on stage and 10 musicians in the pit, Central New York Playhouse’s production of John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse’s Chicago was already the most crowded place (save for Regal Cinemas Shoppingtown Mall 14) in Shoppingtown Mall … The Central New York Playhouse, in a former retail space, can put up only so many seats. Expect tickets to be in short supply for this fun run.” – James Mackillop, Syracuse NewTimes

actress-singer Alicia Rose Bronzetti brought a conspicuous joie de vivre to the role. …The ensemble showcases singing and dancing by performers such as Stephfond Brunson, Alicia Cobb, Leila Dean,Christopher James Lupia and Korrie Taylor — all fully capable of playing main roles, and some of them will do so.” – Russ Tarby, Eagle Bulletin

“This cynical, slick, ironic tale of murder, infamy, power and the original idea of “fifteen minutes” of fame really shines and struts under the hard work of The Central New York Playhouse.  Well done!”  -Craig Thornton, WWNY-TV

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
