In roaring twenties Chicago, chorus girl Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap … until he finds out he’s been duped 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 fame, fortune and acquittal.
This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse. Chicago was nominated for eleven Tony Awards after its 1975 debut, and the 1996 revival won six out of eight Tonys and a Grammy Award.
