SynopsisThe musical exploration of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery -- all those things that we hold dear to our hearts. Chicago follows not your usual housewife, Roxie Hart, who gains dubious notoriety when she kills her boyfriend, invents her defense and manipulates everyone from her trustworthy husband to the fickle media and the unsuspecting public. Featuring well known songs, 'All That Jazz,' 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'Mr. Cellophane'.
