Using volunteer drivers in conjunction with their professional drivers, At Home In Darien has arranged for transportation at approximately 6:30 pm. Seniors can be picked up at their homes and will be returned home safely after the show.
Theatre 308 will present the longest running American musical in Broadway history, Chicago, the winner of six Tony Awards for its revival in 1996, takes place in the roaring twenties, a time of great political corruption and media sensationalism. Failed vaudeville performer Roxie Hart murders her faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines with help from Chicago’s slickest lawyer Billy Flynn.
Executive Director of At Home In Darien Gina Blum said, “The evening will be an opportunity for seniors to enjoy an entertaining show.” She remarked, “It is our hope that seniors who don’t drive, don’t like to drive at night, or who might otherwise miss the show, will take advantage of this special event.”
