Chicago still glitters hypnotically!
Ben Brantley, New York Times
With original songs that have become Broadway standards in their own right, such as 'All that Jazz', 'Cell Block Tango,' and many, many more, Bob Fosse's energetic, vaudevillian, cabaret style musical has seduced audiences worldwide since 1975, with its sexy 1996 revival becoming one of the Great White Way's longest running shows.
Inspired by the 1926 play of the same name, and based on court reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins correspondence of the high-profile trials of murderesses Beulah Annan and Belva Gareter for the Chicago Tribune. The state's press and public were immediately enamoured of the sensationalist reporting, making the women into celebrities overnight and changing attitudes whilst the Jazz Age freed women from previous societal bounds. Chicago covers many issues from homicide to greed and corruption but hammers home the biting truth: Show business is the biggest scam of them all!
Told through song and salacious dance, Chicago is a true pleasure, an unapologetic smash hit that keeps you coming back for more.

Velma Kelly is glamorous cabaret dancer and acrobat awaiting her trial for the murder of her philandering husband in Cook County Jail. Used to being the talk of the town, she is surprised on being upstaged by the new girl, chorus girl Roxie Hart, a timid but ambitious murderess who's in danger of stealing Velma's carefully cultivated limelight.
On murdering her lover, Roxie first convinces her dim-witted husband to take the fall, but when he puts two and two together, she's all on her own, until she meets charming, media savvy lawyer Billy Flynn. There's just one problem, Billy Flynn is also Velma's lawyer. This starts a battle over the charismatic Flynn, which Velma and Roxie must go against each other to get themselves out of prison and onto the stage!
