Chicago (Broadway, Ambassador Theatre, 1996) | Playbill

Chicago

Broadway
Musical
Revival

A true New York City institution, Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. Now in its 25th year on Broadway, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history and the second longest-running Broadway production ever.



SYNOPSIS:

In the Roaring Twenties, aspiring chorus girl Roxie Hart and fading vaudeville star Velma Kelly each face trial for murder. Both as cynical as they are sexy, the two women compete for the services of shady lawyer Billy Flynn, who promises to make them media celebrities and win them acquittals. With its killer score and all-new knock-’em-dead dance numbers, this deliciously lurid tale of adultery, murder and justice as showbiz packs some serious heat.
