Based on the 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, and set in roaring twenties Chicago, the musical follows Roxie Hart, whose crime of passion lands her on Merry Murderesses Row, sharing the spotlight with vaudeville icon and fellow felon Velma Kelly. To keep their names in the headlines and themselves off death row, Roxie and Velma ultimately join forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal.
