WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame and fortune, one showstopping song after another, and the best dancing you've ever seen. It's no wonder it has been honored with countless awards and thousands of standing ovations worldwide. Set amidst the flashy decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover and transforms her malicious crime into sensational headlines reminiscent of today's tabloids. The edgy story line is rocket-propelled by a tart, jazzy vaudeville score featuring such Broadway standards as "When You're Good to Mama," "Cell Block Tango," "Mister Cellophane" and "Razzle Dazzle."
