My fans know how obsessed I've been with this musical since my YouTube career began, doing numerous parodies based on the music and now I get to live this classic musical every night. My dreams are coming true, two leads on Broadway in one year, I could not be more grateful and excited to razzle dazzle the audience every night."

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
