Per the production, "because two people who work at the Ambassador Theatre tested positive for the COVID 19 virus today (Saturday, November 26th), the 8PM performance of CHICAGO will not proceed, out of an abundance of caution.

With no scheduled performance tomorrow (Sunday), CHICAGO will resume shows on Monday as scheduled. CHICAGO follows strict industry protocols with the safety of everyone a priority. Ticketholders for tonight's performance will be contacted by their point of purchase."

A new block of tickets is now on sale through September 11, 2022 for the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC).

Beginning January 3rd, performances on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays will begin at 7PM. An updated performance calendar can be found at chicagothemusical.com/tickets

With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, Chicago features set design by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, sound design by Scott Lehrer and casting by Stewart/Whitley.


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.
