“Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery... all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts.” So begins the international multi-award-winning musical, Chicago.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and 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 malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
Chicago - The Musical
One of the hottest shows wherever it's staged, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a nightclub singer who dreams of headlining in Vaudeville, but only achieves celebrity status when she murders her lover and enlists the help of Chicago's shrewdest lawyer to whip up the publicity surrounding the case and ensure her acquittal. Slick, sexy and sassy, Chicago is a must-see musical, with choreography in the style of the legendary Bob Fosse and a fantastic jazz score.
