Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, CHICAGO is the winner of six 1997 Tony® Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy® Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, 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.
You won’t want to miss this production of CHICAGO – and all the reviewers agree. Time Magazine calls it “A Triumph,” Newsweek raves “Smashing” and Entertainment Weekly sums it up by calling CHICAGO “Broadway’s Most Electrifying Show.”
Audience Recommendation: Performances are recommended for a general audience. As an advisory to adults who might bring young people, this production is recommended for ages 13 and up. All persons entering the theater, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
