A long-running revival of Kander and Ebb's gritty, satirical musical about lust, treachery, and murder among chorus girls in '20s Chicago. More…
Winner of six Tony Awards and currently the longest-running show on Broadway, 'Chicago' is an electrifying and darkly comic tale about two competitive murderesses behind bars competing for the spotlight. Iconic songs include 'All That Jazz' and 'Razzle Dazzle,' and the choreography is inspired by the late Bob Fosse.
