“Murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery–all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts.” So begins the musical Chicago–and creators John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse never back off from their bold and sinister promise.

Chicago, winner of six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, is a loving look back at vaudeville, a timely satire of the justice system, and a reminder of what great theater can be.
