Chicago

25 Nov to 20 Jan

An explosion of scandal, celebrity and murder runs riot throughout the streets of 1920s Chicago.

A camera flashes and Roxie Hart looks straight into the lens with a hint of a smile playing on her lips.

On the front of the newspaper, and having gained notoriety by shooting her good-for-nothin’ lover, her dreams of superstardom on the stage are one step closer to becoming reality.

Slip through the bars of the Cook County Jail as Roxie joins Velma Kelly and the Six Merry Murderesses. Witness as they spiral down into the seedy underworld along the gritty road to fame, assisted by their manipulative and smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn, who will keep them from death row while making them stars.

One of the most famous musicals of all time, this is a tale of exploitation, adultery, fame, greed, violence, treachery, corruption, murder and all that jazz.
