BREAKDOWN

Roxie Hart - An aspiring vaudevillian and murderess who kills her paramour after a spat and is sent to jail.
Velma Kelly - A vaudevillian and murderess who is on trial for killing her cheating husband and sister. She is represented by Billy Flynn and competes with Roxie Hart for him.
Billy Flynn - Velma and Roxie's lawyer who has a perfect track record and makes celebrities of his clients to win sympathy and sway public opinion.
Amos Hart - Roxie's faithful and good-natured but simple husband whom nobody pays attention to. He spends most of the show trying to make Roxie take interest in him or even just acknowledge his existence.
Matron “Mama” Morton - The matron of the Cook County Jail. Grants the inmates favors in exchange for bribes.
Mary Sunshine - The newspaper reporter who follows the trials of both Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly. In most productions, Sunshine is revealed to be a male at the end of the show.
Fred Casely - Roxie's paramour, a furniture salesman. Shot dead at the beginning of the play, he appears frequently in flashback.
Sergeant Fogarty - The police officer who investigates Roxie's case.
Martin Harrison - Assistant district attorney tasked with prosecuting Roxie.
Katalin Hunyak : A Hungarian immigrant woman (her surname Hunyak is a variant of an ethnic slur; the film changes the surname to Helinzski) falsely accused of decapitating her husband. She cannot speak English except for the words "not guilty" and "Uncle Sam" and refuses to confess to a crime she insists she did not commit.
Aaron : Hunyak's indifferent public defender. His unwillingness to defend her and inability to get her to plead guilty leads to her hanging.
Mona, Annie, June, and Liz : Other female murderers at the Cook County Jail, referred to as “merry murderesses”; primarily appear only in the "Cell Block Tango" number.
Go-to-Hell Kitty : A spoiled pineapple heiress who briefly steals the spotlight away from Velma and Roxie. Also one of Billy's clients. Her lecherous husband Harry also appears briefly before being killed on-stage by Kitty.
A nameless juror, bailiff, court clerk, judge and newspaper reporters are also among the ensemble, with most serving as dual roles.
