Kander and Ebb's classic musical tells the twisted tale of killers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who became famous for the salacious murders they were accused of committing. CHICAGO's storied success over the decades stems from its unique vaudeville-style story-telling and continual flow of wonderful songs (beginning with All That Jazz). The story is set in 1920s Chicago, but its heart is in the America of the late 60s and early 70s. Much of the show's character flows from the creative insight of the legendary Bob Fosse, whose Razzle Dazzle show biz sensibility infuses every aspect of Chicago. It's a show about people who crave the spotlight, and will do anything for fame — what's more American than that?
