Visually striking and chock-full of iconic musical numbers, Chicago is a musical based on Maurine Dallas Watkins' play of the same name. The work of true Broadway legends Fred Ebb, Bob Fosse and John Kander, the show centers around a desperate showgirl named Roxie Hart who, on trial for the murdering her lover, steals the limelight from the it-girl criminal Velma Kelly. With the help of a sensational and highly persuasive lawyer Billy Flynn, the women leverage their celebrity status in order to be acquitted of their cold-blooded crimes. Filled with the jazz and glamour of the Prohibition era, Chicago is a social commentary on criminality and the cultural preoccupation with fame.
