LAUNCHING into a sultry rendition of ‘All That Jazz’, lead actress Elethea Sartorelli kicked off Koorliny’s latest offering in true vaudevillian style.

Koorliny Art Centre’s interpretation of the classic satirical Chicago enthralled and delighted a full house on opening night on February 10.

The longest-running US musical on Broadway tells a saucy tale of crime and corruption merged with fame and success that feeds the insatiable appetite of the press.

Actor Jon Lambert won hearts from an emphatic audience with his portrayal of Amos Hart and his almost unfaltering loyalty to his tempestuous wife, Roxie.

Liberal doses of humour throughout the show portray the madness and folly of human frailty.

Koorliny’s Chicago is directed by Kim Angus, choregraphed by Allen Blachford, musical director Andrew Dobosz.

It stars Sartorelli, Helen Kerr, David Wallace, Rachel Monamy, Tate Bennett, Callan Kneale and Jon Lambert.

The season runs until February 25 with 2pm and 8pm shows.

Adult themes, some sexual references and some mild coarse language.

Presented by the Koorliny Arts Centre and Kwinana Industries.

Tickets cost $25 standard and $23 concession.
