CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. No wonder CHICAGO has been honored with 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations.
Transporting the audience to the roaring 20s, CHICAGO tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together while chorus girl Roxie has been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Velma’s incarceration soon becomes a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
Whether you’re looking for your first Broadway musical, whether you’ve seen the Academy Award®-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you’ve seen it before and want to recapture the magic, CHICAGO always delivers.
“Chicago is a triumph! It doesn’t just give us the old razzle-dazzle; it glows.”
—Richard Zoglin, Time Magazine
