The story is based on the original 1926 play, written by Maurine Dallas Watkins who was assigned to cover the trials of Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner for the Chicago Tribune in 1924. These women were accused of murder in the 1920s when Chicago's public was captivated by a string of homicides by high-profile women. While the original production opened in 1975, the revival received higher praise from critics. With more than 9,000 performances, this is the longest-running musical revival on Broadway. Directed by Walter Bobbie, a stellar cast comes together, bringing verve to this satirical story of corruption, with extravagant performances choreographed by Ann Reinking and music by John Kander.

The Story

Set in its titular city during the Jazz Age, the story follows Roxie Hart who kills Fred Casely after he tries to break off their affair. A tale of corruption, power and fame follows in the wake of this passionate crime. In the early 1920s, there were several high-profile cases involving female killers. A series of acquittals gave rise to the lore that attractive women couldn’t be convicted in Chicago. Roxie was modeled after Beulah Annan, whose trial drew public attention for the scandalous nature of her crime. After Watkins’ sensational coverage of the events in the Chicago Tribune received mass readership, she was inspired to write Chicago, the play.
