Devilish and delightful, Chicago is an indisputable Broadway landmark that features a dazzling score by the Tony Award Winning duo of John Kander and Fred Ebbs, and eye-popping choreography, originally staged by the incomparable Bob Fosse, whose style is strongly identified with the show. Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the "celebrity criminal." Set in the roaring "jazz hot" twenties, CHICAGO is a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you've ever seen.
One of the most popular musicals of all time, CHICAGO has been honored with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations. The Broadway revival holds the record for longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history. The Academy Award-winning film version of the musical starred Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, John C. Reilly, and Queen Latifah.
