Come on, Babe! If you’re looking for razzle-dazzle entertainment… If you’re looking for a night out at the theater you’ll remember for years to come… If you’re looking for pure Broadway… then look no further than Chicago!
The iconic American musical, Chicago, features music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Ebb and John Fosse. When it debuted on Broadway back in the 1970’s, Chicago became a classic and won 6 Tony Awards! The Broadway revival in 1996 now holds the record as the longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!
Chicago has everything that makes a musical great: It is a universal tale of greed, fame and fortune set in 1920’s Chicago; it has one show-stopping tune after another; the sets are incredible; the costuming is exquisite; and it features some of the best dancing you could ever imagine!
The story begins as Roxie Hart is sent to prison for killing a man who tried to walk out on her. While in prison, she meets Velma Kelly, a big-time vaudeville star, who is locked up for murdering her sister and philandering husband. Tensions run high as Roxie and Velma vie for the spotlight and the attention of the adoring public—all from behind bars. The two gals vie for the same lawyer, Billy Flynn, to help them win their freedom, and they play the public from prison to help win fame for when they’re finally free, although instead of being onstage, they are mugging for the cameras of the newspaper reporters.
This spectacular musical is as addictive as gossip rags, and as unforgettable as any trial of the century. It is the one show you can always count on to give you the thrills and memories that only come from seeing a Broadway musical. It is an unforgettable journey into the crime and corruption of the 1920’s.
