Chicago - The Musical
"Welcome. Ladies and Gentlemen, you are about to see a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery - all those things we all hold near and dear to our hearts. Thank you."
So begins Chicago The Musical, and its creators John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse never back off from their bold and sinister promise. The kiss-and-tell tale of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who kills her lover; Velma Kelly the glamorous double-murderess vying to keep her press supremacy; and Billy Flynn, the slick lawyer who has the power to keep them from death row and make them in to stars.
Chicago won the 1998 Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical Production and songs such as 'All That Jazz' 'Razzle Dazzle' 'Class' and 'All I Care About'.
