Theatre Memphis will open Broadway's longest running American musical, Chicago, on the Lohrey Stage March 9, 2012, to run through April 1, 2012.

Modeled after real life stories, the plot of Chicago is set in the roaring twenties. Chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped. She and another "Merry Murderess", Velma Kelly, manipulate their lawyer and the system as they vie for the spotlight and the headlines. They ultimately join forces in search of fame, fortune and ... acquittal. With the book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, the original production opened on Broadway in 1975 and the current production debuted in 1996 and won seven Tony Awards® including best revival of a musical, best direction and best choreography. The music by John Kander and Lyrics by Ebb have played to over 6000 Broadway audiences since the revival opened. 

Tickets are $30 for adults, $15 for students with a valid ID. Call 901.682.8323 to purchase tickets or go online to www.theatrememphis.org
