(WJBK) - The Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical "Chicago" will welcome YouTube sensation and Broadway star Todrick Hall in the role of Billy Flynn for one week only, October 16-20 at Detroit's Fisher Theatre.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
Todrick joined us on The Nine to tell us more about his role. You can hear from him in the video player above.
Tickets are still available for the performances. Tickets can be purchased online at www.broadwayindetroit.com or www.ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 800-982-2787. Tickets can also be purchased at the Fisher Theatre box office.
Note there are shows on Sunday, the 21st as well, the Todrick won't be in those performances.
