Chicago, the second longest-running production currently playing on Broadway, Broadway's longest-running musical revival, as well as the longest-running American show in Broadway history, has extended its booking period, and is now selling tickets through to 04 Jan 2015.

The show has been playing on Broadway since 14 Nov 1996, it moved to its current home, the Ambassador Theatre, on the 29 Jan 2003.

Chicago now stars Amra-Fay Wright (Velma Kelly), Bianca Marroquin (Roxie Hart), Brent Barrett (Billy Flynn), Christopher Fitzgerald (Amos Hart), R. Lowe (Mary Sunshine) and Carol Wood (Matron "Mama" Morton).

Chicago follows not your usual housewife, Roxie Hart, who gains dubious notoriety when she kills her boyfriend, invents her defence and manipulates everyone from her trustworthy husband to the fickle media and the unsuspecting public. The show features the well known songs, 'All That Jazz,' 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'Mr. Cellophane'.

Chicago has music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb, Book by Bob Fosse & Fred Ebb.

The musical is directed by Walter Bobbie, with choreography by Ann Reinking, scene design by John Lee Beatty, costumes by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound by Scott Lehrer.

Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
