Chicago

music by John Kander
lyrics by Fred Ebb
book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse

directed by Susan Marie Rhea and Mark A. Rhea
music directed by Jake Null
choreographed by Rachel Leigh Dolan


** EXTENDED TO APRIL 14 **
** WEDNESDAY PERFORMANCES ADDED **

In roaring twenties Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a 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 another “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 Bob Fosse.

** Winner of 6 Tony Awards **

“Fosse’s best work, uncompromising and with real strength showing in every idea and image.” – Newsweek
