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 they appear 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!), bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), and an original score by composer/lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). THE STING takes you back to an era where jazz reigns, the stakes are high, and the dice are always loaded.
