'CHICAGO'
7:30 p.m., The Weekend Theater. $14-$18

Although it debuted in 1975, was revived on Broadway in 1996 and was adapted for the big screen in what would become the Oscar-winning Best Picture of 2002, "Chicago" never really went away. The sexy Kander and Ebb musical satirizes Prohibition Era crime, politics and media in the metropolis' legendarily corrupt "Big Bill" Thompson city hall. If you've managed to somehow stay a stranger to the play, it may be time to acquaint yourself with the boozy showgirls and amorous lawyers tripping the light fantastic. The musical runs every weekend through Oct. 24 with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
