ACANY’s 2022 Main-Stage Production
Ever inspiring and feeling even more timely now than when it was written, CHICAGO is set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s. CHICAGO tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
Ahead of its time in breaking the fourth wall and dripping with stylishly sophisticated cynicism that was in vogue in the 1970s, Chicago was an instant Broadway success story. The song and libretto feel as modern now as when created and continued Bob Fosse’s legendary career as a director-choreographer.
