Premiering in 1975 and the hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center’s Encore! series, Chicago won six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.

Chicago first opened on Broadway at the 46th Street Theatre in New York City on June 3, 1975. It was directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse. The musical was subsequently revived on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City on November 14, 1996. It was directed by Walter Bobbie. This production has subsequently transferred to Broadway’s Shubert Theatre and Ambassador Theatre, where it is still running.
