About this show

Set amid the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart (played in this production by Grammy Award winner Brandy Norwood), a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously 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 malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
