In roaring twenties Chicago, chorus girl Roxie Hart murders her faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband
Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie
and “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the
American Dream: fame, fortune … and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked
immortal staging by choreographer Bob Fosse.
