Chicago the musical review

On both the 12th & 23rd I watched the production'Chicago'. I watched it with the drama class on the 12th and Courtney on the 23rd. The main cast members were Catherine Zita-Jones starring as Velma Kelley, Renee Zellweger starring as Roxie Hart and Richard Gere as Billy Flynn. When the musical/ movie started I saw an old modernized pub with lots of bar girls smoking and lots of men in the background drinking. Everyone was dressed in 1930's style clothes and jazz music was playing and Velma had just started singing little things like Velma washing her hands made me feel intrigued to know more, at the very start I thought this is pretty average I'm not going to like it because I don't usually watch musicals but overall I myfirst impressions were reasonably good.
Chicago's basic plot was Murders Velma Kelly (who killed her husband and sister after finding them in bed together)and Roxie Hart (Who killed her boyfriend when she discovered he wasn’t going to make her a star) find themselves facing death together and fight to keep themselves or make themselves stars. During this fight Roxie;s husband get;s treated unfairly and an innocent women is hung! To save herself from being hung Roxie Hart lies about everything and fools the media into believing she is a good girl. Chicago is a musical, this means that all the emotions people are trying to express are done through songs or asides.
Two of the lead characters were Roxie Hart, and Billy Flynn (Renee Zellweger & Richard Gere) and a supporting role would be amus Hart. I liked these three actors because they all showed how they were feeling through their voices and their hand and body gestures.
