I found this video footage on Playbill.com. One of the Playbill staff members recalls seeing the tour of "Chicago" in the 90's in SF. Thoughts? from RC in Austin, Texas This is a three part video sequence.
Chita and Ben in Chicago
"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

I saw this production in Las Vegas and thought it excellent. Chita was just as great playing Roxie as she was when I saw her play Velma in the original production in the seventies.
