People who like mounting musicals in Nashville apparently have a serious hankering for this darkly atmospheric, character-rich tale of Windy City crimes and criminals in the Roaring ’20s. The Kander/Ebb/Fosse Tony award-winning collaboration has been presented with measured success in the fairly recent past by other area theatrical organizations, and clearly that’s OK with the pool of local actors and singers who relish the opportunity to attack the piece’s edgy ambience, colorful score and arty dance numbers. Familiar tunes include “All That Jazz,” “Mr. Cellophane” and “Class,” and of course who wouldn’t want to see (or perform!) another rendition of the potently sexy “Cell Block Tango.” A strong creative team is at the helm of this 2011-12 season opener for Keeton Theatre: director/choreographer Kate Adams–Johnson and musical director Ginger Newman. The cast of 19 includes familiar names such as Tonya Pewitt (seen not long ago as the star of Street Theatre’s Hairspray), Terry McLemore, Jamie London, Hannah McGinley, Christina Candilora and Macon Kimbrough. It’s a dinner-theater deal, but there’s a show-only option.
