Chicago the Musical is set in the roaring twenties during prohibition-era Chicago! During the time of speak-easies, illegal alcohol sales, flapper dresses and short, bob hair cuts, Chicago is intensely rich with the raw sexuality and crude survivalists in 1920’s Chicago. Chicago has all the necessary ingredients for a hit Broadway show; with fame, fortune, and incredible song and choreography one after another. Since Chicago first opened on Broadway in 1975 it has won six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, and a Grammy, along with having received over 1,000 standing ovations. Chicago has embarked on multiple revivals and countless North American and UK tours. Chicago has been such a huge production that it was adapted into a hit film, weighing in some of the biggest stars in the world at that time. The film was directed by Rob Marshall and starred Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger, Richard Gere, Queen Latifah and John C. Reilly.
The story of Chicago unfolds with vuadevill star Velma Kelly. She is serving time for killing both her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Velma rules the roost with her celebrity fame and beauty. But she becomes threatened when the equally beautiful Roxie is accused of killing her lover. At first Roxie convinces her unassuming husband to take the blame, telling him it was a burglary. However her husband eventually puts the facts together and Roxie is sent to prison where she joins the likes of Velma. Roxie steps on Velma’s limelight and the music and lights and feud excite the stage as Chicago puts on a note-worthy show.
