Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the show, according to Riverside, “follows chorus girl Roxie Hart and the murder of her faithless lover. She convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap, but when he finds out the truth, he turns on her. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie meets Velma Kelly, another ’merry murderess.’ Joining forces, Roxie and Velma vie for the spotlight in search of the "American Dream" of fame, fortune and acquittal.”
With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, the musical is based on the play Chicago, by Maurine Dallas Watkins.
The design and production crew includes Anne Shuttlesworth (music director), James Dardenne (scenic designer), Yael Lubetzky (lighting designer), Kurt Alger (costume/wig designer), Craig Beyrooti (sound designer), Mark Johnson (production stage manager), and Amy M.
