Chicago, by Kander and Ebb
Holly's Chicago Rocks!
Sunday, October 14, 2007
5.0
You are a fan of local community theater. You are deciding where to shell out your next 15 bucks a seat. You wonder where you will get your money's worth? You read up on some reviews.

Let me be plain and simple.

You will be overwhelmed by the Holley Theater's production of Chicago.

Applause after each and every number.

Enthusiastic, spontaneous standing ovation closing each show.

This is how the production has been enjoyed by audiences at every performance I attended. Go see it.

This is clearly a labor of love by the Dahlonega theater community (mostly volunteer) and all the work pays off in a wonderful, polished, and highly entertaining evening of theater.

Fabulous performers (where did they come from???), superb music (right down to the perfect trumpet "wah wah wahs" opening the show and defining the tone), and knock-your-socks-off dance numbers (I had to reset my pacemaker).

Although the original Broadway version got mixed reviews, it is clear that the world has caught up with Bob Fosse's satirical visions, and Chicago is now an American classic. I think Mr. Fosse would be pleased as punch to see that the Holley has honored his vision by pulling off a powerhouse production, celebrating the old-school traditions of humor, vaudeville, music, dance and All that Jazz!
