The musical Chicago was performed at John Jay the weekend of March 10th, 2016.  Every musical John Jay puts on is the culmination of three months of hard work by the members of the cast and crew. From Rehearsing to Building the Set the process by which a Musical is put on is demanding, but ultimately very rewarding.  Often when viewing the polished end product, it is easy to take the set and scene changes for granted. The construction of particular set was demanding overcoming both technical and logistical hurdles.  Nothing permanent could be screwed into the stage until a month before the production, so students working on the set pulled long hours to get it finished on time.  In these photographs I sought out to document both the progress of set construction and the students who made Chicago possible.
