About the Show

One of the longest running shows of all time, a Prohibition-era musical based on a 1926 play of the same name about real-life criminals.

Story: Roxie Hart is sent to prison for killing the man who tried walking out on her. While in prison she meets up with Velma Kelly, a big time vaudeville star with twice as much blood on her hands. The show follows the two as they attempt to get away free and with as much fame as they can muster.
