Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
Script adaptation by David Thompson
Directed by Christopher Qualls
The longest running American musical in the history of Broadway, Kander and Ebb?s Chicago follows Roxie Hart as she joins the ranks of Velma Kelly and the other ?merry murderesses? of the Cook County jail in 1920s Chicago. With the help of lawyer Billy Flynn and prison matron Momma Morton, Roxie and Velma harness the power of celebrity to plead their cases and become stars. Although Chicago originally opened on Broadway in 1975, its tawdry tales of celebrity culture run amok remain extremely pressing today. Grab your gin and join us!
