Chicago
Chicago

Now's the time to catch Broadway's red-hot hit! This sensational tale of sin, corruption and all that jazz has everything that makes Broadway great: knockout dancing, a ripped-from-the-headlines story about fame and scandal and one show-stopping song after another. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammys® and thousands of standing ovations. And now, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!
