Book by Bob Fosse & Fred Ebb

Music by John Kander

Lyrics by Fred Ebb

At last! City Lights brings you Chicago! It’s the roaring twenties, and vaudeville hopeful Roxie Hart kills her lover and convinces hapless hubby Amos to take the rap – until he finds out he’s been duped. Once in prison, Roxie and “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly vie for the spotlight and the headlines, joining forces with unscrupulous lawyer Billy Flynn to bamboozle the public, win their freedom, and rise to fame and fortune on the vaudeville circuit. The winner of numerous Tony and Academy Awards, this razor-sharp satire by Bob Fosse and the musical team behind Cabaret features one hit after another, including “Roxie,” “Razzle Dazzle,” “When You’re Good to Mama,” “Mister Cellophane,” and the unforgettable “All That Jazz.”
