It's time to start speaking in fabled terms about Brewers folk hero Eric Thames

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 17:01:00 CDT

"Chicago" brings the razzle dazzle but lacks the sizzle

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:26:00 CDT

A musical with this many showstoppers - not to mention Bob Fosse's signature style - can't help but be entertaining, but "Chicago" at the Marcus Center was more broad than biting, almost kitsch rather than crackle. It's fun, but no flim-flam flummox that'll fool and fracture `em.
