Set amidst the glitz and glamor of the 1920s, this musical vaudeville is based upon the eponymous play written by Maurine Dallas Watkins, who found inspiration for the tale as a crime reporter. Based on real life accounts, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife/nightclub dancer who finds herself on Murderess’ Row after malevolently shooting her lover, who threatens to leave her. Desperate to avoid a conviction, Roxie hires the smooth-talking criminal lawyer, Billy Flynn, who assists in manipulating the public, the media, and her contending cellmate, Velma Kelly, by transforming her vicious crime into a bombardment of sensational news headlines.
