READ: Crazy but charming new TV show

Set in the 1920s, “Chicago” is a scathing satire of how show business and the media make celebrities out of criminals. It has Bob Fosse-inspired choreography, skimpy outfits and killer songs such as “All That Jazz,” ”Cell Block Tango” and “Mr. Cellophane.”

FEATURED STORIES

Flynn has been played by the likes of Patrick Swayze, Jerry Springer, Wayne Brady, Tom Wopat, Tony Yazbeck, Harry Hamlin and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Camil has appeared in the films “Pulling Strings” and “200 Cartas.” He has been on Broadway in “Latinologues” in 2005 directed by Cheech Marin.
