  • About Chicago

    With “All That Jazz” and frequent celebrity casting, Chicago tickets are still selling well. has tickets to eight shows a week. Be sure to check your ticket for Chicago before heading to the theater – though most Chicago performances start at 8pm, matinees are at 2:30pm and tickets for Sunday evening shows are for 7pm.

    This musical set in the Prohibition era is currently celebrating over 15 years on Broadway. The winner of six Tony Awards, Chicago tells the story of corruption in the criminal justice system in the 1920s, exploring society's fascination with celebrity criminals along the way. With music and lyrics by seminal songwriting team John Kander and Fred Ebb, and choreography by Ann Reinking based on the style of original director Bob Fosse, Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre has some of the most exciting music and dancing on Broadway today.

    Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudeville performers caught up in the Roaring Twenties' world of booze and jazz. Stage sensation Velma Kelly is currently serving time in the Cook County Jail for double homicide. Aspiring singer Roxie Hart wants to be just like her – apparently in more ways than one. When Roxie is herself charged with murdering her lover, these two "jazz killers" fight for publicity, perks and the support of celebrity attorney Billy Flynn. 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.

    Chicago is based on the play of the same name by journalist Maurine Dallas Watkins. 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.
