A sharp-edged satire that was ahead of its time, CHICAGO has become a musical theatre classic in a category all its own. Set in the roaring twenties, the story follows chorus cutie, Roxie Hart, as she tries to get acquitted for the murder by pinning it on her gullible husband. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “merry murderess” named Velma Kelly both compete for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in their search for the American dream: fame, fortune, and celebrity! But they’ll both need Billy Flynn, Chicago’s slickest lawyer, to give ‘em the old “Razzle Dazzle” if they want their freedom back! This award-winning production includes unforgettable songs like “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango,” and “Nowadays,” and with a dazzling score by Kander and Ebb and legendary choreography by Bob Fosse, it would be a crime to miss CHICAGO!
