Chicago enthralls with all that jazz and much more. Set in the 1920s, this spectacular production transports you back to the vaudeville era of entertainment. Directed by Walter Bobbie and with music by John Kander & Fred Ebb, Chicago is the winner of 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, and Grammy Award winner for Best Musical Theatre Album. In this steamy and seductive production, watch the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail and find out who comes out on top.

Why Watch Chicago

Chicago is the longest running American musical in Broadway history. Touted as the quintessential Broadway show, the musical has all the elements of entertainment - a racy storyline, glamorous characters, outstanding choreography, lively music and stunning stage design. Chicago brilliantly manages to transport audience members to Chicago during the prohibition era. With superb performances by Charlotte d’Amboise and Lana Gordon, this musical masterpiece is should be on everyone’s Broadway bucketlist.

The Story

Chicago tells the story of Velma and Roxie, two rival vaudevillian murderesses who are locked in Cook County Jail. Velma is serving time for the murder of her husband and sister, while Roxie is in for the murder of her boyfriend, with whom she cheated on her husband. Velma takes the help of the prison matron, Mama morton, and enlists the services of slick Chicago lawyer Billy Flynn. Billy takes on the case and transforms Velma into a celebrity by brilliantly using the murder hypes to her advantage. But soon enough, he takes on the case of Roxie as well and, before you know it, the two murderesses find themselves in a battle for notoriety. As the women continuously plot to steal the limelight and attention of the media, they pull out their best tricks.

Mediocre at best if you ask me. I'm not even sure what the show lacks any more, but definitely not worth a second watch

If you like Broadway musicals, there's no way you can come to New york and miss out Chicago (highly renowned)

Highly recommended- this was what I've been seeing all around, which is probably why I didn't like it as much
