Show-stopping numbers like "Cell Block Tango" and "Razzle Dazzle" scrutinize the 1920s justice system while at the same time wowing the audience with panache.With nightclub-style musical numbers, scenes of saucy rendezvous and sultry dancing, Chicago
reveals the underbelly of vaudeville politics and, ultimately, the price of fame.

Assigned to report on the trials of famous murderesses in the 1920s, Watkins' scandalous columns became so popular that she decided to turn them into a play. It was Bob Fosse's wife, actress-dancer Gwen Verdon, who suggested that he turn the play into the popular musical it is today.
Two hours and 30 minutes (one intermission)
Good for kids?
The show is recommended for those aged 13 and older, as Chicago
