Chicago also currently stars Olivier Award winner Leigh Zimmerman as Velma Kelly and Tony Award nominee Charlotte d'Amboise as Roxie Hart. Featuring classic tunes by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. Recipient of six 1997 Tony Awards, the revival is directed by Walter Bobbie.

Todrick Hall plays Billy Flynn through January 14, 2018.
