SEATTLE -- C'mon babe, why don't we paint the town? After a long wait, the hit revival of John Kander & Fred Ebb's Chicago hits Seattle June 16-July 5 at the Paramount Theatre, as part of the 1997-98 United Airlines Broadway at the Paramount series

The plot, seemingly torn from an episode of "The Jerry Springer Show" concerns a murderess in 1920's Chicago who parlays her notoriety into the media spotlight, and ultimately a career in vaudeville.

The tour, based on the still SRO, Tony Award-winning Broadway revival directed by Walter Bobbie, and choreographed by Ann Reinking, is headed up by Alan (Growing Pains) Thicke as razzle-dazzle lawyer Billy Flynn. Belle Callaway portrays foxy Roxie Hart, while her cell-block chum and rival Velma Kelly is played by Stephanie Pope. Roxie's sad-sack husband Amos is portrayed by Michael Tucci.

Chicago runs Tues.-Sat. evenings at 8 PM, Sun. evenings (and July 4) at 7 PM, with Sat. and Sun. matinees at 2 PM at The Paramount Theatre, located at 9th and Pine Streets, downtown Seattle.

For tickets ($25.50-$47.50) call (206)292-ARTS for Ticketmaster, or visit any Ticketmaster outlet, or the Paramount box-office, Mon.-Fri. 10 AM-6 PM.
