Two spinsters sisters.
One bottle of Elderberry wine.
Twelve bodies in the basement
A barrel of laughs.
A comedy that kills with kindness. The well-meaning spinsters, Martha and Abby Brewster, befriend old men and attempt to relieve their loneliness by inviting them in for a glass of homemade wine laced with “just a pinch” of cyanide. When their levelheaded nephew discovers what they are up to, and draws their attention to the fact that their antics are not only against the law, but wrong, Martha responds, “Oh piffle!” This hilarious comedy is an American classic.

One faithless husband.
Two jailed murderesses.
A string of show-stopping production numbers.
And all that jazz.
A blockbuster of the American musical theatre, Chicago is a satire on corruption and the era of celebrity. Vaudevillian Velma Kelly and local chorus girl Roxie Hart are in jail for murdering their husbands and lover, respectively. In their quest for redemption, they team with Billy Flynn, a slick attorney in search of fame and fortune. With music by the legendary songwriting team of John Kander and Freb Ebb, the score features such hit songs as "Cell Block Tango," Mr. Cellophane," and that great anthem to all things Broadway, "Razzle Dazzle."
