Chicago The Music Poster Windsor Light Music Theatre

Windsor Light Music Theatre presents Chicago The Musical, the multi Tony Award Winning sharp-edged satirical dark comedy set in the roaring twenties, at The Chrysler Theatre on May 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 & 10, 2020.

Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in the roaring 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight– though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy, sexy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century.

Chicago has everything: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one showstopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. No wonder the Broadway production of Chicago has been honored with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations.
