Get ready to be razzled and dazzled with Chicago, the longest-running American musical in Broadway history. A universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, the show takes you on an unforgettable journey through the city of Chicago’s sultry, storied past. Complete with one show-stopping number after another, it’s no surprise that this spectacular musical has been selling out tickets for decades.
Set in 1920s, Prohibition-era Chicago, the provocative musical follows the story of Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart, 2 young and beautiful vaudeville performers who vie for the spotlight and the attention of the public—all from behind the bars of prison. The show opens as Velma makes headlines for killing her sister and philandering husband, but her fame quickly fizzles when the media learns of Roxie’s equally enticing arrest for the murder of her lover. Alongside unsavory characters like Matron “Mama” Morton and lawyer Billy Flynn, watch as the women sing and dance their way through scandal and rivalry to ultimate fame and friendship.
Chicago first debuted on Broadway in 1975, with electrifying choreography by the legendary Bob Fosse. The original production ran for 2 years and earned 10 Tony Award nominations. The dazzling production returned to the Broadway stage in 1996, where it’s been wowing audiences ever since. Over more than 20 years, celebrities such as Bebe Neuwirth, Michael C. Hall, Brooke Shields, Patrick Swayze, Christie Brinkley, Taye Diggs, Sofia Vergara, and many more have starred in the show. It also picked up 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography. In 2002, the production was made into a movie that won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
