Transcript Chicago I want to be a star With a nod to the piano player, the buxom brunette in the tight black dress took her place center stage. A little show of leg and she was off — her voice oozing to the first sultry strains of "What Lola Wants, Lola Gets." The men in the audience cheered. So began the third night of auditions for the musical Chicago, the drama department's latest production. Based on the play by Maurine Watkins, Chicago is the hard-luck tale of Roxie Hart, ex-chorus girl turned murderess. "Chicago is, in short, crime and passion during the Thirties in Chicago," Maureen Leonard, publicity manager for Wortham Theater, said. "There's singing, dancing and acting in this play and I think it will be pretty interesting since the chorus is close to wearing G-strings — it's just a crazy musical," she concluded, rolling her eyes. Auditioners were easily spotted in the small auditorium. They were either biting their nails, singing to themselves, or in a deep trance. The three judges perched to the right of the piano added to the raw ankiety choking the air. A name was called and the next hopeful took his place on stage. The piano began with a perky tune and he started his song. Things were rolling along until he forgot the words. The moment of dreaded silence had arrived. He looked at the music, gave a shaky smile to the audience and started again. A sigh of relief escaped from the aOdience. Not bad, at least the kid had guts. Another name was called. No way, this guy looked like he was scared of his own shadow, probably read encyclopedias for fun. Once again a nod to the piano, and his voice? His voice had the audience clapping, snapping their fingers, dancing in their seats. Another Al Jolson minus the makeup. The last auditioner had the kind of Frankie Avalon-early Beatles clean looks that make women melt and men shrug their shoulders. But this guy was not just another pretty face — he could sing as his voice crooned to the oldie "Ain't Misbehavin." This time the women in the audience cheered. Life under the spotlight — think of the challenge. Yeah, got the fever and all that jazz. — Johnnie Fritz
