About the Show

Set in Chicago during the roaring 1920s and based on real-life murders and trials, CHICAGO follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her secret lover. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. Tensions come to a head as the two murderesses vie for the ultimate spotlight. Broadway’s longest-running American musical, CHICAGO is a female-driven powerhouse. It’s a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the American media machine.

Contains mature language, violence and moments of undress. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.

Themes

  • This musical features several characters who commit crimes, but do not always get convicted, for various reasons. Is there a theme or message the show may be communicating to the audience? Or is it simply aiming to entertain?
  • Even though this story takes place in the 1920s, the depictions of a voracious media, cynical lawyers and sensationalized violence may echo what occurs in the current era. Why are such issues and themes seemingly timeless in our society?
