MD Theatre Guide: CHICAGO

Keegan took this landmark show, and – even in their smaller stage – has kept the power and intensity of the show intact. “Chicago,” with its outrageously challenging dance sequences, stylized, larger than life characters and the tongue in cheek breaking of the fourth wall is one of a kind. And with the nice touches

BroadwayWorld: CHICAGO

For the next five weeks, Keegan Theatre is transforming itself from that nice theatrical establishment on Church Street in Dupont Circle to “a noisy hall where there’s a nightly brawl.” And you would be hard pressed to name any other place you’d rather be than watching the razzle dazzle that is their sensational new production

DC Theatre Scene: CHICAGO

“Razzle dazzle ‘em!” Silver-tongue shyster lawyer Billy Flynn melodically opines that if you do that, you’ll have an audience eating out of your hand. If you can snag a ticket to the Keegan Theatre’s new production of Chicago, prepared to be razzled, dazzled and blown away. As is fitting for a musical set in the turbulent 1920s

DC Metro Theater Arts: CHICAGO

With its snappy-saucy take on Chicago, The Keegan Theatre shows it knows how to give an audience the ol’ razzle-dazzle. And Keegan has done the durable musical proud. In fact in Keegan’s mounting of the quasi-naughty musical on a bare wood set in a decommissioned church, a case can be made that Chicago’s vaudeville-based storytelling works even better

Metro Weekly: CHICAGO

Somewhere inside Roxie Hart’s first number [of The Keegan Theatre’s new production of Chicago], “Funny Honey,” during which the brazen, fame-craving floozy introduces her sorry sap of a husband Amos, it dawns that this Roxie is bananas. Portrayed by Maria Rizzo with a bold mix of moxie and murderous rage, she’s Roxie unhinged. And she

The Washington Post: CHICAGO

If there’s a bulletproof musical, “Chicago” is it. The John Kander-Fred Ebb-Bob Fosse masterpiece has been on Broadway and the road so long you don’t expect to encounter anything but that slinky version that’s been part of the entertainment landscape since the last century, but the Dupont Circle troupe Keegan Theatre has opened a production

Metro Weekly: TOP GIRLS

THE AUDACIOUS OPENING act of Caryl Churchill’s modern classic Top Girls assembles a millennium’s worth of female power, pain, and wisdom at one lively dinner party. Setting the mood for a story focused on modern career woman Marlene (Karina Hilleard), Churchill enlists five larger-than-life female figures — real and fictional, legendary and literary — to voice the

Washington Post: TOP GIRLS

The opening act of Caryl Churchill’s 1982 “Top Girls” is still breathtaking as women ranging from the ninth-century Pope Joan to 13th-century concubine Lady Nijo and Victorian-era explorer Isabella Bird gather for a vivacious dinner party hosted by a modern employment agency manager who is celebrating a promotion. The final act of Thatcher-era class warfare knifes into
