The Old Town Playhouse (OTP) in Traverse City just finished a run of CHICAGO, the Musical. It created tremendous buzz as one of the best-ever productions at OTP. Directed by Brett Nichols, the show included three Leelanau County women who brought great energy, talent, and pizzazz to their roles. Karen Cross played Matron “Mama” Morton, Elena Sica Mosher played Katalin Hunyak and was a dance captain, and Miishen Willis was understudy for Roxie Hart, and played Liz in the ensemble.
