Riverside Theatre, led by Producing Artistic Director/CEO Allen D. Cornell and Managing Director/COO Jon R. Moses, present Broadway's longest-running American musical, Chicago, which performs on the Stark Stage from January 3 - 22, 2017.

Joining forces, Roxie and Velma vie for the spotlight in search of the "American Dream" of fame, fortune and acquittal.
