About this show

Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who he or she appears to be. Based on the 1973 Academy Award-winning film, The Sting tells the tale of a pair of con men: small-town grifter Johnny Hooker and big-time hustler Henry Gondorff, who plot to bring down the city's most corrupt racketeer. The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On the Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello Dolly!), and book writer Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone). The original score is by composer-lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). The Sting takes audiences back to an era when the blues reigned, the stakes were high, and the dice were always loaded.
