|Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle in the Kander and Ebb smash hit musical which
is sure to deliver! Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a
universal tale of fame and fortune, one show-stopping-song after another, and
the best dancing you’ve ever seen. It’s no wonder CHICAGO has been
honored with countless awards and thousands of standing ovations worldwide.
Set amidst the flashy decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie
Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover and
transforms her malicious crime into sensational headlines reminiscent of today’
s tabloids. The edgy storyline is rocket-propelled by a tart, jazzy score featuring
such Broadway standards as When You’re Good to Mama, Cell Block Tango,
Mr. Cellophane and Razzle Dazzle. Murder. Greed. Corruption. Treachery.
And all that jazz!
