Updated January 11, 2024 - 9:54 pm

THEATER

‘Chicago’

“Chicago” is bringing its 25th anniversary tour to town, despite the fact that the Tony-winning musical debuted in 1975 and the revival on which this tour is based is from 1996. The only numbers that should matter to fans, though, are the likes of “All That Jazz” and “Cell Block Tango.” See Roxie Hart and Billy Flynn and the rest of “Chicago’s” cast of characters at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, with additional performances through Jan. 21, in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center. Tickets start at $35; thesmithcenter.com.

THEATER

‘Cluelesque’

“Cluelesque” is having its world premiere staging. What’s “Cluelesque” you ask? According to Vegas Theatre Company, it’s “the play that is a parody that is also a burlesque that becomes a musical and also a whodunnit that is based on the movie which is based on the board game that is based on the British board game which was based on some detective fiction that Agatha Christie most likely wrote but this is written by Simone.” To put it more concisely, it’s basically a burlesque take on the 1985 movie “Clue.” See it at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday, with additional performances through Jan. 27, at 1025 S.
