All That Jazz • Razzle Dazzle • When You’re Good to Mama • Mr Cellophane • Cell Block Tango
Chicago. The Roaring 20s. The Jazz Age. And for the homicidally inclined, a new career option beckons - celebrity! When ambitious chorus girl 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 this spectacular show that delivers wit, pizazz and red hot jazz!
