Premiering in 1975 and the smash hit of the 1997 Broadway season, is CHICAGO! Winner of six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later, the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.
The show is set in Chicago, back in the roaring twenties. Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap. Until he finds out he's been dumped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "merry murderess", Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines. Ultimately joining forces in search of the American Dream: fame, fortune, and acquittal.
This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
