Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but mostly humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength - and love - which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
Actors all have those roles they love, but will never have the chance to perform onstage – whether because they are of a different gender, age, race, or have different physical characteristics.

Well, here's your chance to hear them present the dream roles they will never perform in a staged production!
MisCast Cabaret is a three-performance event featuring Depot Theater talent performing songs from roles, in which, they would never be cast.

"Chicago" is set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials. It follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer, Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight - though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, "Chicago" is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century.
