Overview

The longest-running American musical on Broadway, and winner of multiple prestigious awards, “Chicago” is a 1920s-inspired show that features themes of greed, murder, manipulation, and fame. The legendary musical showcases two rival prison inmates whose money-hungry lawyer turns their incarcerations into a circus of sorts, complete with big jazz numbers, catchy songs, and a scandalously fun plot.
