Yup, from next Nov.27th on, Madrid will be the place to go and see Chicago the musical. It'll be, of course(^^u) in Spanish, but I'm seriously considering the visit. I mean, it's 60€ (the cheapest tickets are completely sold out), but man, It's Chicago!!.
I was unlucky enough to find out there was a contest for today and they were giving out free tickets, but well, maybe I can get free tickets as when we went to Spamalot.
For those profanes, Chicago is a Brodaway Musical from 1975 and it's one of the longest running musicals ever. The story talks about Roxie Hart, an unfaithful wife that lives in Chicago, city of sin and Jazz, that ends up caged for killing her lover. There she meets Velma Kelly, a former Jazz Star charged with the murder of her sister and husband when she finds out they were cheating on her. In jail we meet Mamma Morgan, the very own jailer, who helps the prisoners for money, or Billy Flinn,a lawyer with no qualms and the rest of the cast, a whole bunch of women guilty of murder but with a good reason for killing. Roxie then has to perform a show to prove her "innocence" guided by Billy, the best lawyer in Chicago with a strange concept of "justice=show business", and become a star in the process.
Some of you, as well as me, have surely seen the film starred by Catherine Z. Jones, Richard Gere and Renée Zellweger. I loved it and I'm a big fan (and I really like musicals) and I'll be there if I have the chance!.
