Who says murder’s not an art?

Chicago. The Roaring 20s. The Jazz Age. And for the homicidally inclined, a new career option beckons – celebrity! When ambitious chorus girl Roxie Hart murders her no-good lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap, it looks like case closed . . . until Amos discovers that Roxie hasn’t been entirely straight with him and rats her out . . . Awaiting trial at the Cook County jail, Roxie meets infamous show girl and “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, who’s the darling of the tabloid press. Why? Because femme fatales and cold-blooded killings sell papers! Roxie quickly learns that the justice system is just another branch of showbiz: to make it to the top (or get acquitted), you need the best connected agent (or hot-shot lawyer) in your corner – like charismatic counsel for the defence, Billy Flynn. Chicago with Billy selling the press a very different version of Roxie’s crime, Roxie soon becomes the toast of Chicago and knocks a decidedly unhappy Velma off the front pages – only for another sordid murder to steal Roxie’s limelight . . . So what now for Roxie and Velma? How can they grab the headlines – again! – and get their careers back on track? The longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history, Chicago returns to its vaudeville roots in a spectacular PFT production that promises wit, pizazz and red hot jazz . . . Featuring the largest live band ever to appear in a Summer Season musical and a multi-talented cast of 16, Chicago is truly a show to die for!
