Set in Chicago in the late 1930s, “Pal Joey” is the story of Joey Evans, a brash, scheming song and dance man with dreams of owning his own nightclub. Joey abandons his wholesome girlfriend, Linda English, to charm a rich, married older woman, Vera Simpson, in the hope that she’ll set him up in business.
