Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band' in its entirety with the Hogshead Horns and the Crème Tangerine Strings.
The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality five of the hardest working musicians in NYC – turns the concept of a Beatles tribute band on its head.

With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a powerhouse American musical created in a faux vaudeville style that tells the prohibition-era celebrity-criminal story of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly - two "might"-be murderesses trying to beat their charges with guts, gusto, and iconic Fosse choreography.
Jacob Keith Watson plays Amos Hart, Roxie’s quietly suffering spouse who is -by all accounts- making his "Mr. Cellophane" impossible to overlook.
