Chicago, set during the roaring twenties in the Windy City, tells the story of Roxie Hart, a house wife and nightclub dancer who murders the side-man in her life after he threatens to break off their relationship. Roxie is then arrested and escorted to Cook County Jail, where she meets the six "merry murderesses", including Velma Kelly, her rival and cell mate. Roxie reaches out to Chicago's slickest and most well known criminal lawyer, Billy Flynn, in a desperate attempt to avoid conviction. Flynn seizes the story, manipulating the crime into a sensational publicity opportunity and making Roxie a star in the process. Watch as the story unfolds through extraordinary musical numbers including well known musical favorites such as, "All That Jazz", "When You're Good to Momma", and "Razzle Dazzle".
