Arizona Broadway Theatre had been waiting to produce the iconic musical Chicago since the theatre opened in 2005. In March of 2020, ABT finally opened Chicago to sold-out audiences and projected that this production would be the most popular in ABT history.

The cast and crew were sent home, the costumes were packed away, and the ghost light was set on the stage with the Chicago set to wait until the show could, hopefully, one day be back.
