In the razzle-dazzle Roarin' 20's of Chicago, married chorine Roxie Hart shoots and murders a faithless lover. Roxie and Velma, another murderess on death row vie for the spotlight and the headlines, hoping the publicity will catapult them to fame, freedom and successful stage careers. This sharp-edged tale of murder, exploitation and treachery features a dazzling score that sparkles and is loaded with terrific choreography, originated by the infamous Bob Fosse. The gin is cold and the jazz is hot in this wildly entertaining musical classic.
".... Come on boys, why don't we paint the town, and ALL THAT JAZZ!"
