BY ARRANGEMENT WITH ORiGiN™ THEATRICAL ON BEHALF OF SAMUEL FRENCH INC.
It's the roaring twenties in Chicago, and Vaudeville Wannabe Roxie Hart will do anything to get her way to the top, including murder! Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie meets Nightclub Sensation Velma, who has the city's slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn wrapper around her finger. Each fighting for the spotlight (and the headlines!) the two merry murderesses will not be outdone in their fight against each other and the public for fame and fortune. Billy turns Velma's incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback but Roxie's got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
