    Until such time as a “Breaking Bad” musical puts the name Heisenberg on everybody’s lips, let us step into jazz-age Chi-town for the musical Chicago opening this Friday, April 5 at Musical Theatre Southwest. This Broadway smash filled with murderesses, fame, fake pregnancy, gunplay, vaudeville, lawyers, jail, singing and dancing will have you asking, “who says murder’s not an art?” The musical runs April 5 to 28 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets are $20 to $25. For more information and tickets, see mtsabq.org or call 265-9119. (Clarke Conde)
