Set in the titular city during the glorious days of jazz, Chicago revolves around two rival murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. One of them, a nightclub star is serving time for killing her husband and sister who she finds out were sexually involved. The other woman had killed her lover she had been cheating on her husband with.
Chicago has had a prolific response, receiving 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations from Mexico to Moscow. Chicago has also been converted into a movie but still owns the stage!
Chicago still glitters hypnotically! It remains the best adult entertainment in town… and still, bubbles with the joy of performing!
