Chicago with Aerlyn James

This week our hosts will chat with Aerlyn James about which of life's truths can be gleaned from the Broadway classic, Chicago!


Ben Brantley, in his review for The New York Times, wrote "'Make love to the audience' was another Fosse dictum. That's exactly what Ms. Reinking and her ensemble do. Chicago can still seem glibly cynical and artificially cold, especially in its weaker second act. But these performers know just how to take off the chill."
