The Broadway revival of Chicago opened November 14, 1996, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre before transferring to the Sam S. Shubert Theatre the following year. In 2003, the musical moved to the Ambassador Theatre, where it celebrated 22 years on Broadway November 13.

Chicago is the second-longest running show (after The Phantom of the Opera) and the longest-running American show in Broadway history.

Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. currently stars as Billy Flynn alongside Bianca Marroquin as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Evan Harrington as Amos Hart, Raena White as Matron “Mama” Morton, and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
