Chicago the musical is a Broadway classic. The musical hit about Jazz-age Chicago has been running on Broadway since 1996!

Chicago is the kiss-and-tell story of chorus girl Roxie Hart, who famously murders her lover, Velma Kelly the glamorous double-murderer, and Billy Flynn, the slick and manipulative lawyer keeping them from death row while promising to make them both stars. This sensational tale of sin, corruption and "all that jazz" has everything that makes Broadway great: knockout dancing, a ripped-from-the-headlines story about fame and scandal and one show-stopping song after another. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations. And now, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!
