'CHICAGO'
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $22-$52.

Can Celebrity Attractions and Broadway in Little Rock at large continue its successes of the past year? If there's a show that'll keep up the trend, it'll be "Chicago," a tried-and-true classic if there is one. For the uninitiated, the musical follows working-girl chorus dancer Roxie Hart, who, after killing her partner-in-adultery, winds up in jail, befriending Velma, a sultry vaudeville star and soon-to-be tabloid superstar. Filling this production's role of sensationalist lawyer Billy Flynn is John O'Hurley, the "Dancing With the Stars" all-star, former "Family Feud" host and, most famously, the eccentric J. Peterman, maybe the best supporting character in the entire "Seinfeld" universe. The touring revival production will give Tuesday and Wednesday performances, both at 7:30 p.m.
