This sensational tale of sin, corruption, and "All That Jazz" has everything that makes Broadway great: knockout dancing, a ripped-from-the-headlines story about fame and scandal, and one showstopping song after another. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations.
And now, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!
Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, two killer-dillers on their way to fame by any means possible. All publicity is good publicity, right? When Roxie shoots her lover, Fred, she employs an unscrupulous lawyer, Billy Flynn, to get herself off the hook. But will she be thwarted by double-murderess and headliner Velma Kelly? Or will this gruesome twosome become a sister act?
Chicago features a classic score by John Kander and Fred Ebb, including the songs "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango," and "Razzle Dazzle." So you better slick your hair and wear your buckle shoes for Chicago on Broadway.
