About the musical: Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star, Velma serves time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie has been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turns Velma’s incarceration into 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…the #1 longest running American musical on Broadway and winner of 6 tony awards, CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz!
