Chicago. The Roaring 20s. The Jazz Age. And for the homicidally inclined, a new career option beckons - celebrity!
When ambitious chorine Roxie Hart murders her no-good lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap, it looks like case closed . . . until Amos discovers that Roxie hasn’t been entirely straight with him and rats her out . . .
Awaiting trial at the Cook County jail, Roxie meets infamous show girl and “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, who’s the darling of the tabloid press. Why? Because femme fatales and cold-blooded killings sell papers!
Roxie quickly learns that the justice system is just another branch of showbiz: to make it to the top (or get acquitted), you need the best connected agent (or hot-shot lawyer) in your corner - like charismatic counsel for the defence, Billy Flynn.
With Billy selling the press a very different version of Roxie’s crime, Roxie soon becomes the toast of Chicago and knocks a decidedly unhappy Velma off the front pages – only for another sordid murder to steal Roxie’s limelight . . .
So what now for Roxie and Velma? How can they grab the headlines - again! - and get their careers back on track?
The longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history, Chicago returns to its vaudeville roots in a spectacular PFT production that promises wit, pizazz and red hot jazz . . .
Featuring the largest live band ever to appear in a Summer Season musical and a multi-talented cast of 16, Chicago is truly a show to die for!
